The first annual Warrior Recognition and Appreciation Day (WRAD) will take place on February 11th, 2015 at Barley J Hunting Preserve, benefiting the Ft. Benning Wounded Warrior Association.  Three local businesses –  ServiceMaster Recovery Management of the Southeast, Masterbuilt and River City Contracting – are Gold-level Sponsors for the event.  The Ft. Benning Wounded Warrior Association assists soldiers, wounded warriors, and their families during recovery from injuries or illness and during the transition to civilian life.

Sponsorships are available to help provide a day in the field at Barley J Hunting Preserve for a local wounded warrior, including a pheasant shoot and fishing.  A private party has donated event costs and 100% of the sponsorship proceeds go to the Ft. Benning Wounded Warrior Association.

 If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or making a donation, please call Kelly Oliver at 706-457-3526.


Warrior Recognition and Appreciation Day is an annual event at the Barley J Hunting Preserve.  WRAD’s goal is to provide an opportunity for local businesses/industry personnel to support local wounded warriors and their families.
