• Wounded soldiers treated to special day
By Jim Wallace

They fished from the banks, bridge and dock Saturday, and a group of wounded soldiers had a grand time doing so.
Thirty-eight wounded warriors, from the Wounded Warrior Transition Unit at Fort Gordon, visited Charlie Lewis’ ponds at Cedar Crest Farms off of Cobbham Road.
For seven years, Lewis has invited the soldiers, their families and caregivers for the soldiers to the ponds to fish their hearts out.
“It gives the soldiers, who have given so much to our country, a chance to relax,” said Lewis. “The soldiers are in rehab at Fort Gordon, and they and their children have a great time.”
Lewis was quick to point out that the event is not a one-man show. He heaps praise of his wife, Trudy, and others.
“She’s the boss,” said Lewis. “She and staff from Crackshot Pawn and Firearms organize the event each year.”
