 EUREKA –Humboldt Deputy Sheriffs Organization (HDSO) is proud to announce its support for the Wounded Warrior Project with a donation of $500. HDSO member, Destry Henderson, convinced 36 Humboldt Sheriffs Deputies and others to grow their best mustaches for six weeks to generate sponsors and raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Deputies were judged in multiple categories including Best in Show, Weight, Most Pathetic, Multicolored, Creepiest and Outlaw Stache. After awards were presented and pledges counted, Destry Henderson announced he had raised a total of $1,380 for the Wounded Warrior Project.
