    I had the distinct honor in assisting a group of "Wounded Warriors" on a Eastern Shore goose hunt yesterday outside of Easton, MD. As you can see by the picture, it was very successful day. Great bunch of men!!

    I've been working with wounded warriors until recently, teaching them to shoot clay pigeons. They are trained rifle and handgun shooters so I had to break them out of the rifle mindset and instill in them a whole new concept of shooting. The thing I am most struck by in working with them is they are kids. When you see their civilian clothes of choice they are no different for the most part than any other suburban kids you see around. Often they would arrive with long faces and leave laughing and grinning. I would get them hitting birds and then we would get them doing chip shoots. They love it and you can see as they compete they have a regard for each other. I don't have any pics because all pics have to be cleared by the military and I don't think any of them have been yet.
