MELTON HILL LAKE (WATE) – Some wounded East Tennessee know more about rowing after the Oak Ridge Rowing Association took them out Saturday on Melton Hill Lake.

The guys are members of Project Hero, which is made up of veterans who were gravely injured while serving our country.

David Blau has never rowed before. "We've been out here for three weeks now and I have the most support I've had in the seven years I've been out of the military," he said.

"What they've given can't be measured really. This isn't an equal gift back," said rower Becky Hancock. "But it's a wonderful thing we can do to give back to these guys. It's a really important thing to do."

The veterans are also training at ORNL.
