Big Rack Trophy Club Hosts NC Hunt for Vets
President Greg Quiel and the members of the Big Rack Trophy Club in Littleton, North Carolina, continued their commitment to support our military when they hosted three Marines and a Corpsman from Camp Lejeune on behalf of Freedom Alliance.
With only the serenity of the outdoors, their weapons, and shells donated by HEVI-Shot®, the Camp Lejeune hunters and the Big Rack guides headed out to the ground blinds to sight turkeys, in the hopes of bringing home a trophy gobbler.
One Marine named Kevin posted to Facebook during the day, “Enjoying God’s creations…” And although the troops called in some hens and a few toms, the birds never came within shooting distance. That didn’t quash the enthusiasm, however.
For service members coming from a harrowing combat situation, such hunts and other outdoor events for a time help erase some of the war residue and lend to a peace of mind—a great benefit for the modern warfighter.
And so, a big thanks to Greg, Russ, Gary, and Bob from Big Rack Trophy Club, as well as the donors from HEVI-Shot®, for partnering with us to offer military heroes the chance to leave the base and enjoy the outdoors.
Without pressure and without obligation … this is how we seek to say thank you to men and women who serve for our freedom.
