A North Carolina outdoorsman is arranging special hunting trips for war veterans as a way to help them readjust to life back home.
“I was never in the service, and this is my way of giving back,” Greg Quiel, a federal civilian firefighter at Camp Lejeune, told The News & Observer newspaper. Quiel, of Garner, N.C., founded the Big Rack Trophy Club for deer hunters and a bird-hunting group called Quack and Quail Club.

On Saturday, Quiel teamed with the Freedom Alliance, a nonprofit group started by retired Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, to host a quail hunt for veterans. It was his fourth hunting outing specifically for veterans.
Chief Warrant Officer Gary Stouffer, who spent 17 years in the Marines, said the outdoor activity is good for the soul.
“You can get in touch with nature and let nature heal you of the wounds of war,” he told The News & Observer. “Let mother nature heal you. You find peace in the woods.”
