Kansas Guard fishing event marks 10 years

Coffey County Lake

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – A northeast Kansas fishing tournament honoring the memory of fallen National Guard soldiers is hitting the 10-year mark.

The Kansas Veterans Memorial Bass Tournament has been held at Coffey County Lake near Burlington to honor the service of two soldiers who were killed in combat in Iraq in 2004.

Killed were Sgt. 1st Class Clinton Wisdom and Sgt. Don Allen Clary, who were both avid sportsmen.

The event, to be held April 26, is sponsored by the 2nd Battalion, 130th Field Artillery Family Support Group. There is no entry fee for the tournament, though a $5 donation is requested to cover lunch expenses for participants.
