Wounded Warriors see action in Union Co. duck hunt

UNION COUNTY, IL (KFVS) -

Almost a dozen soldiers who've sustained injuries in the line of duty got some good therapy on Thursday, Dec. 3.

Ten men and one woman took part in the Wounded Warrior duck hunt at Grassy Lake in Union County. The event is a two-day tour that includes room, board and, of course, the company of fellow soldiers.

"The camaraderie that we have, just being with one another where everybody understands everybody," said Leroy White III of Savannah, Tenn. "Everybody's got problems. They all get along and can talk about their problems to one another. Whereas, it's different when you're back home in civilian society, where a lot of people don't understand what our problems are."

Thursday's event was the 7th consecutive year for the duck hunt.
