U of Illinois Student Starts Veterans Outdoor Group
The Champaign News-Gazette reported Saturday that Eric Swenson wants to unite fellow student veterans on the campus. His plans include taking those with disabilities on a pheasant hunt and competing in a softball league. Swenson says it's hard for veterans to adjust to campus life because they're often in classes with younger students.
The Army veteran is working with a local club to organize a free hunting trip that'll include a wheel-chair accessible cart. Swenson has formed a team to compete in a softball league this fall. Swenson says the only problem so far is picking colors for a team that includes Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps members.
