Less than two months after non-profit organization Brazos River Wounded Warriors Outdoors held an event in support of injured soldiers, another local group is planning a three-day outing for 25 wounded military members.
Retired Army Sgt. 1st Class Dana L. Bowman, president and CEO of HALO for Freedom Warrior Foundation, recently announced plans for a hog hunt to be held in and around Mineral Wells beginning Thursday evening.
The event is not a fundraiser, he said, but a chance to give back to the invited guests — each with significant injuries sustained during their military service.
The event will be based at the National Vietnam War Memorial Museum, in far west Parker County on U.S. Highway 180.
Bowman said this is not the first hog hunt he has helped organize in honor of wounded soldiers. Three years ago, he said, he held a smaller hunt in Weatherford, with 10 invited soldiers, but has since used his HALO Foundation to plan a more established event he expects to translate into an annual hunt.
