Bobby Ehrig, U.S. Army Military Police, is a burn patient at the San Antonio Military Medical Facility (Bamsy). He was injured in Iraq after a suicide bomber detonated an explosive filled with a flammable liquid. He has been recovering in Texas for the past two years. To date, he has received 15 surgeries and will undergo several more. He brought his son Tyler to the Hunt for an out-of-the-hospital bonding experience.
Roy Burnes, who is an Eden, Texas, native and philanthropist, donated several high-point bucks to the Hunt. His wife, Arzenet Burnes, made two home-cooked meals of steak and potatoes and also opened her amazing Quarter Horse farm up for visitors.
Regis Giles and her father, Doug, flew in from Miami to participate in the Hunt as well. This wasn't their first Purple Heart Hunt. They actually went all the way to Alaska to volunteer with the non-profit. Doug Giles has a radio show called Clash Radio.
