Wounded Warriors brave cold, ice, and snow

UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - The wintry weather didn't ruin the fun for everyone on Friday.

The Grassy Lake Hunt Club in Union County, Ill. hosted the 5th Annual Wounded Warriors Duck Hunt.

Fifteen veterans came out to the area to hunt for two days.

Even though they faced icy, snowy, cold conditions, the warriors stuck to the hunt.

They say it wasn't about the hunting, but instead bonding with someone else who has gone through the same experience.

Their weekend will wrap up Saturday with being honored at half time of the SIU Basketball game.
