Wounded Warriors, Not Wounded Spirits This Weekend On "Kentucky Afield" TV
We discover how the great outdoors can help heal a hero during a segment airing this weekend on “Kentucky Afield” television, May 1 and 2.
The Wounded Warriors Transition Unit at Fort Campbell teams with members of the Shelley Nickell chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation for a turkey hunt in Livingston County. We find out that this is exactly the kind of rehabilitation that some soldiers need.
We also tell the story of a former Marine who didn’t let a serious injury stop his love of the outdoors – our own “Kentucky Afield” host, Tim Farmer. We feature the story of how a motorcycle accident in 1984 left Farmer with an injury that cost him the use of his right arm. Thanks to a strong will and adaptability, he regained the capacity to continue doing the many things he loved.
