Wolf Creek honors wounded warriors

On September 11, Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery in Kentucky hosted its sixth annual Wounded Warriors Fishing Event for veterans who sustained injuries during their service. Twenty veterans participated in a guided striped bass trip on Lake Cumberland just after sunrise. the Russell County Honor Guard conducted a special ceremony to honor and remember our service personnel for their sacrifice. Participants were then treated to a catered barbecue lunch. Many participants tried their hands at fly fishing at Hatchery Creek after their meals. It was an honor to host this event for these well-deserving veterans.
