ANNISTON ARMY DEPOT, Ala. -- Eight Purple Heart recipients attended a Wounded Warrior Hunt at Anniston Army Depot Jan. 11-13. This was the first time the installation has held such an event.

"This is just another opportunity to say thank you," Col. Brent Bolander, the depot commander, told the Wounded Warrior hunters during the opening ceremony Jan. 11.

The current and former service members were joined during the hunt by volunteer guides familiar with the hunting locales in the Ammunition Limited Area. The weekend was a time of deer hunting and fellowship.

During the event, three does were harvested - one by a Purple Heart recipient and two by bow hunters who had qualified to participate through the depot's Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation program.
Participating in the hunt were Derek Fowler of Cropwell, Ala.; Johnathan Purser of Jacksonville, Ala.; Micah McGuffey of Alexandria, Ala.; James Kenneth Scott of Sylacauga, Ala.; Hubble Hainline of Athens, Ala.; Thomas Case of Florence, Miss.; Edward Quick Jr. of Cropwell, Ala.; Douglas Kinzer of Fort Benning, Ga.; and Jameson Boley of Jasper, Ala.
