Bringing veterans together

For Bill Coomer aka “Wild Bill,” AM Vets Outdoors is about getting veterans together. Coomer of Cape Girardeau is the founder of the organization which takes veterans on hunting and fishing trips. On March 14, the Air Force veteran accompanied other veterans while hunting for snow geese in Ware, Illinois. “The whole premise of this is for vets to be introduced to other vets that way they can become friends with at least one of them,” Coomer said. “That way where later on, if they have depression or thoughts of suicide or whatever, at least they have somebody to talk to.”
