You may remember Amway Independent Business Owner Bill Carlson from last year’s Achieve Magazine. With the support of his organization, Support US Armed Forces, Bill took disabled 36-year veteran, Master Sergeant Tony Cogdill, on the bucket list trip of a lifetime to Mellon Creek Outfitters.

This year, Bill is back at it again and he’s not alone. Mellon Creek Outfitters was so impressed by the heart-warming dedication shown by Bill and Support US Armed Forces that they have stepped up and decided a full partnership was the right thing to do.

Now known as the Master Sergeant Tony Cogdill Honor Hunt, the original trip has expanded to honor three Marine veterans for their service and dedication. But there’s a catch. The Marines in question must have earned a Purple Heart or above during their time in the Armed Forces. This year’s special guests for the Tony Cogdill Honor Hunt are Corporal Walt Kelbaugh, Sergeant Jeffrey Leeman, and Staff Sergeant Mason Poe.

Each Marine guest brings with him a heart-warming story of extreme determination and perseverance. To learn about their stories and for more information on Bill’s hard work and dedication behind the scenes, please see the link below.
