Hunting with Heroes Makes a Difference in the Lives of Wounded Veterans

Since 2011, MaxYield Cooperative has been a proud supporter of Hunting with Heroes. Hunting with Heroes is a non-profit organization centered on the physical and emotional healing of America’s veterans. Each year, 4-6 Marines are flown to Iowa from the Wounded Warrior Battalion in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina to begin their trip of camaraderie, hunting, and healing. MaxYield Cooperative is happy to play a small part in these veterans’ journeys by covering the cost of the airfare to and from Des Moines.

Once in Des Moines, the Marines travel to Lakota, Iowa where they stay and hunt for the duration of the trip. But this is not “just” a hunting trip. Hunting with Heroes makes an impact on the emotional and mental wellbeing of our nation’s veterans. Captain James Nash’s story is one of the many success stories from Hunting with Heroes, which we featured on From the Field back in 2015. You can read his story here. More about his time as a Marine and what he is up to now can be seen in this video:

 

 

Hunting with Heroes is truly making a difference in the lives of our nation’s most loyal, committed citizens. The impact the organization is making on the Marines in attendance is real, and MaxYield Cooperative is proud to be a part of their mission.
