This November and December, 14 wounded warriors will enjoy excellent deer hunting in Alabama thanks to the Semper Fi Community Task Force and outdoor companies such as Alpen Optics.
Alpen Optics, which has developed top quality binoculars, spotting scopes, rifle scopes and accessories, will show their appreciation for these heroes by donating waterproof monoculars to each hunter.
"The small, but bright monoculars are ideal for spotting game and are lightweight and easy to carry," said Vickie Gardner, Alpen Optics' vice president of stuff.
In addition, Alpen has provided hats, key chain lights and more for the gift bags that will be presented to the Marines and soldiers participating in the hunts.
Hunters will be guided by expert deer guides on premier private property. In addition, they will use blinds designed for those with special needs.
"We want these very special heroes to know how much their fellow citizens appreciate what they have done for their country and to know we have not forgotten them," said J. Wayne Fears, outdoor writer and Wounded Warrior planning committee member. "There is a peace to be found when hunting with good friends, and we hope to help these wounded warriors find that peace, and the healing that comes with being in the outdoors."
