The healing powers of the outdoors
At the heart of Hookset Brothers Combat Recovery's mission is a belief that something magical happens when veterans who suffer from combat-related Post-Traumatic Stress get outside. "You see the soldiers change before your eyes," said co-founder Adam Troy. The nonprofit, based in Lake Palestine, Texas, seeks to empower veterans by offering them an outlet through free fishing and hunting recovery trips. "We are all about making the great outdoors available to combat veterans," said Troy, who deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan while serving in the Army from 2002 to 2012.
