The local chapter of the Wounded Heroes Hunting Club will sponsor a hunt Jan. 19.

WHHC East Coast Liaison Chris Rupp said four veterans will participate. One will use a special tracked chair to get over the rough ground.

The veterans were wounded in action, including one who was aboard the USS Cole when it was the target of a suicide attack Oct. 12, 2000. He is one of 39 injured sailors who survived the attack; 17 others were killed in the incident.

The property is owned by Barry Maloney, whose father is a 95-year-old World War II D-Day veteran who stormed Utah Beach in France, said Rupp.

Additional wounded veteran hunts are scheduled in the near future.
