Last week, WMBF aired a special This Is Carolina about a local charity called SOWW, which stands for Special Operations Wounded Warriors.
SOWW members and hunters take part annually in a hog hunt called Takin Bacon. It happens under the radar.
Part one looked at Takin Bacon 2018 and how SOWW made a difference for one retired Army Ranger when the group gave him a new military service dog that will change his life.
This week’s part two took a deeper look at how that surprise came to be.
SOWW is beginning a new chapter of this canine charity. It was inspired locally by an American war hero and led to a partnership with a Canadian-based elite canine training company, Baden K-9.
A few days before the Takin Bacon weekend event, WMBF News was invited to a SOWW board member’s home, where other board members and charity benefactors were gathering for a day of food, music and camaraderie before the big event.
