EDISON, GA (WALB) -

The 9th annual Purple Heart Tour is underway in Edison.

Southern Wilderness Plantation hosted about 50 active duty military members who serve in special forces positions and other combat jobs.

Today they competed at different stations shooting shotguns, rifles, and bows.

“This is our way of showing our support to them and this gives them an opportunity to get together and have some good cohesion and have a good time. This also shows them what they are fighting for,” says Dan Hammack, Found of the Purple Heart Outdoors Tour.

Different Tours are hosted all over the country throughout the year. Other hunts are hosted in Iowa, Wyoming, and Oregon.
