Northern Michigan Hometown Heroes: Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors


In this episode Tom and I discuss the importance of reintegrating disabled veterans into the outdoors. We also learn that his non-profit activities are centered around the DNR managed Sharonville State Game Area.

Seven hundred acres of the Sharonville State Game Area are filled with custom hunting blinds and trails that are accessible for track wheelchairs.

Finally, we discuss Tom’s service in the United States Army and his struggle with a traumatic brain injury. He says Michigan Operation Freedom Outdoors is an “opportunity to extend past his enlistment date and to continue to serve.”
