Patton was unemployed for six months when he was fortunate to be hired by USA Cares, an organization that provides financial and advocacy assistance to post-9/11 active duty US military service personnel, veterans and their families. Patton now serves people who are in similar situations that he was in during his unemployment. As a lifelong outdoorsman, he understands the value giving back. “I’ve always wanted to do something greater than myself,” said Patton. Patton's story is inspiring and a story worth hearing. Mossy Oak took him on a Pike County, Illinois bow hunt that was a "dream come true." As he recounts his experiences in life both in service and as an outdoorsman, he knows that he is fortunate.

Today Was the Day | Elk Hunting With a Hero
The debut episode of HONOR features Operation: Iraqi Freedom war veteran, John Faulkenberry, as he hunts Colorado elk in an environment all-too-similar to the mountains he trekked in Afghanistan. The purpose of HONOR is to acknowledge the service men and women of this great country and tell their stories of heroism, bravery, and humility.
