  1. I know tha I am new here, but still I thought you might like to know about this. My son ran into a a young man he went to school with this week in Abilene, They talked for a good while. when he graduated from high school he joined the air force. He had intended to make a carreer of the service. life doesnt always play fair he had to take a medical discharge. he had a braintumor. He is fine now but in the civilian sector now.
    he has started a nonprofit group to help the recovering soilders here in the states. his family owns a large ranch in centeral Texas. he brings the wounded and recovering soilders from the hospitals out to his ranch to hunt. I only wish I could hunt on some of that land, man the deer and hogs are fantastic. He and his friends go and get the boys and bring them out to the ranch set them up in stands or vehiccals to hunt both deer and hogs. they have made it acceccable for the boys to have a few days out in the woods, but with the care they need while out there. they furnish the guns and ammo, and process the game.
    the young mans Name is Jeremiah Cottle SSgt USAF ret. I am proud to know this young man and I am proud of what he is doing for our vets
