The Link-Up

A U.S. Navy lieutenant and two marines were part of a group that visited Patriot Point this week and enjoyed a hunt.

“It was all of the Kindred Spirits from ages 30-ish to 70 getting along so good and enjoying the wonderful setting and amenities of the Patriot Point,” said Brian Rains of The Link-Up, who brought Navy. Lt. Joe Breen to Patriot Point.  “I’ve hunted with a lot of vets and it always seems they are cut from the same cloth of course, standing in the dawn twilight and listening to the ducks and seeing the light come up. And then to watch them work was a pleasure as well“Upon arriving at Patriot Point our group was welcomed by the guide Tim, who immediately made us feel at home,” Kevin Wilcox shared in an email. He made it a point to show us where everything was and give our group the tour of the property.
“After that we settled into the suites provided to our group and spent the evening watching college football, eating dinner, and sharing war stories. Early in the a.m. we met up again with Tim who then outfitted us with some really nice gear including coffee and donuts.

“From there we headed out to the duck blind where the action started. The hunting was simply phenomenal. All of us got more than our fair share of ducks with plenty of pictures to prove it. After that we saddled up and headed back to the main house for a fantastic breakfast. As a disabled Marine Corps Veteran who struggles with PTSD this was truly something special to go out and participate in.

“Thank you Patriot Point for creating a peaceful environment for your Veterans to come enjoy.”
