FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. – June 4, 2013 – A Fort Walton Beach resident who is also an Air Force Staff Sergeant, departed for a bear hunt in British Columbia, Canada June 3-7. The hunt will take place at the Itcha Mountain Outfitters, located approximately 100 miles Southwest of Quesnel, British Columbia. The Staff Sgt. is currently recuperating at Hurlburt Field Air Force Base in Eglin, Fla. where he serves as a combat control instructor.
This is the first time Freedom Alliance is taking an injured service member to Itcha Mountain Outfitters. “We are excited to host the Air Force Staff Sergeant on this bear hunt in British Columbia. Outdoor events such as these provide our injured service members much needed time away from the routine rehabilitation environment. These trips truly aid in the healing process,” commented Calvin Coolidge, Executive Director of Freedom Alliance.
