Sabula, IA (KWQC) A day to appreciate those who have served in the U.S. Armed forces. But for Mitchell Sherman, a member of the Marine Corps, it’s much more.
“It doesn’t matter what walk of life you come from where you’re from, military in general is a brotherhood, you’ll never lose it’s just an honor to be a part of it” said Sherman.

He says the bond that all military men and women have can be summed up in one word. Brotherhood.

“It’s a natural brotherhood, it doesn’t matter how old or young you are, once you’ve made that commitment to the country to defend it and support the Constitution, it really doesn’t matter,” Sherman added.

That bond was shown today, as Military vets celebrated the only way they saw fit, by pheasant hunting. Today was the 5th annual military appreciation event at the Beckridge Hunting Preserve. Rich Boyer, Vice President of ‘Pheasants Forever,’ says this is just a small token of their appreciation.

“I think this is a great opportunity to show folks that have served for this country and provided the freedom that we have today, that we do appreciate them.” said Boyer

Fore the servicemen who participated in today’s event, that appreciation, didn’t go unnoticed.

“It really makes you feel good when you get recognized like that.” said Stan Daniels, a former Army soldier.

But most importantly the event was about enjoying each others company.
