No Warrior Left Behind recently hosted a group of recovering service members and a recovering law enforcement member for a weekend duck hunt at Patriot Point. The group hit the blinds early Saturday morning and within 40 minutes, there were 40 ducks in the bag.
“Thank you so much for the great weekend of camaraderie, fun and skill,” wrote Adam Devine, a marine who is a double-amputee above the knee. “The duck hunt was second to none! There were so many ducks! Patriots Point was a great place to go. The shooting range, gym, common house and dorm house were clean and well taken care of.
“I needed this weekend to help me unwind from all the stressful things going on and not have anxiety about who I was hunting with. Having other warriors, both military and law enforcement, around allowed me to let my guard down and just relax. Thanks again for a great weekend and I hope you are able to help other warriors with more events like this one. Cheers!”
Jeremiah Gorsuch, a U.S. army explosive ordinance disposal service member who had both knee amputated below the knee, wrote: “I had such a great time on the trip to Patriot Point. This is exactly what I needed after having to spend so much time at Walter Reed lately. I was able to meet some veterans and police officers on the trip that I can now call friends. I would definitely recommend this trip to other veterans/first responders.”
