Veterans encouraged to apply for deer hunts
The S.C. Department of Natural Resources and Cowden Plantation near Jackson, S.C., are offering their thanks and appreciation to our military in memory of Spc. Thomas Caughman by hosting two free deer hunts on Nov. 30 and Dec. 14.
Chosen applicants will have lunch before the hunt, as well as the opportunity to tour the Jarrett Rifles Gun Shop and Museum.
Please fill out an application here and e-mail it to SCDNR 1ST Sgt. Ben Thomas (firstname.lastname@example.org). SCDNR is accepting the first 20 applications for each hunt until October 30.
Spc. Caughman of Lexington, S.C., was killed in 2004 while serving during Operation Iraqi Freedom when his Humvee was struck by rocket-propelled grenades and small-arms fire in Baghdad.
