A Veteran’s Day weekend story of a stolen ground blind from a disabled Vietnam veteran hunter ended well in Baileys Harbor on Saturday. Thanks to a social media post by Marci Faustini and a generous gift from an anonymous donor, a sad situation was made right. Faustini explains how it all played out.
Faustini says she arranged a meeting at her home on Saturday afternoon with the gracious donor and the disabled veteran, Larry Ohnesorge. The two men then set up the new tent in the field where the stolen ground blind was taken from public hunting land off Green Road near Baileys Harbor, according to Faustini. She says a Veterans Day story that started out so awful turned out great with one beautiful act of human kindness.
