Veterans 3 Guns and the North Georgia Crappie Anglers teamed up over the weekend to put on the first-annual Fishing with Military Heroes fishing tournament for local area veterans that featured over 30 anglers taking part in the day-long event. “This is our first time for veteran’s,” said event organizer Josh Thornton. “We do a Children’s Fall Classic that we have done for years, and we take out the Jericho House, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, boys and girls clubs through out the year, but this is our first year for this event and we plan to continue with it.” Paired with members of the Crappie Anglers who provided boats and all needed fishing equipment, the teams began fishing in multiple locations on Lake Lanier at 6 a.m. Nov. 17.
