Village Rotary gets involved with wounded Marines

FALLBROOK – The Fallbrook Village Rotary club presented a creative way to assist the recovering combat veterans from Camp Pendleton’s Wounded Warriors Battalion at its monthly meeting June 15.

Ken Munson, retired Lt. Col. Air Force and president-elect of the Bonsall Rotary Club, presented his concept of creating the Wounded Warriors Farm where men and women can be involved in farming operations and grow their own vegetables.

There are currently about 100 patients at the Wounded Warriors Battalion who are suffering from brain injuries, post-traumatic stress disorder and other combat-related injuries.

Munson has already leased several acres of land and divided it into a few dozen garden plots to prepare the land for the garden and farm.

Projects such as building horse corrals and planting trees are just some of the planned activities for the patients to participate in during their time in treatment. The farm will also feature horseshoe pits, hammocks, and a place to relax on the front porch.
