Topic of February Chamber luncheon: Wounded Warrior Group and ACA updates

About seven years ago a couple local veterans got together to try to give back a little bit and formed the NEA Wounded Warriors group. That’s how Bryan Dalton, one of the featured speakers at the February Chamber luncheon at the Parkview Restaurant on Monday, February 5, 2018, explained how the NEA Wounded Warriors Group began. It was created to help area veterans who have been injured to enjoy the sport of hunting and the comradery of other hunters. Dalton explained, “We try to get local veterans that were wounded in service or any prior service member to try to take them on a duck hunt. We throw an annual banquet.” The group raises money throughout the year for it. “This year we had 40 hunters and 10 guides. It’s really catching on,” he said. “It’s mostly been out of Randolph County; we’re trying to include the surrounding five counties. We’re trying to spread awareness of our program.”
