WFV's Wounded Warriors Hunt Program was formally established in 2010 in response to the needs of the wounded, ill and injured military community, who face unique challenges in their effort to enjoy outdoor recreation. The program has two long-term goals. The first goal is to continue infrastructure improvements on Fulfillment Farms to make it an accessible, centrally-located destination for servicemen and women. The second goal is to establish a network of private landowners across Virginia, in diverse locations and with diverse habitat, that want to host a Wounded Warriors Hunt.
We have constructed eight wheelchair-accessible hunting blinds on Fulfillment Farms, each of which was underwritten with private support from generous donors. These blinds have been dedicated in memory of, or in honor of, members of our military community. We have hosted hunts across Virginia, with remarkable support from individuals as well as the local communities. A private family foundation donated funds to purchase a Gator, so that we can safely transport our mobility-impaired guests around the farm.
We work in cooperation with the Wounded Warriors Regiment, Quantico, Virginia to provide opportunities to active duty, medically-retired, and retired disabled veterans. We have supported other organizations with their efforts to provide outdoor opportunities to disabled veterans, so that our resources can have the biggest possible impact.
Please consider a donation to support this program. More than anyone, these servicemen and women deserve time spent enjoying nature's bounty.
