Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation

49 Eagle River Woolly

First and foremost, I would like to thank the community of Eagle River. The amount of generous, gracious hospitality and welcoming from the lot of them was mind blowing. I came on this trip thinking what this organization can do for me. I am leaving with a purpose I have searched for years for. A way to honor my lost brothers, WWIA is that for me. I am beyond honored to be chosen for this trip. It has changed my outlook not only for what it means to be a Veteran but more so what it means to be a good person. To my Guide, Muskie Bob Jacobs, thank you for the opportunity and honor of joining you on your boat. I truly cannot express how much you now mean to me. The sponsors, organizers, cooks, servers, town…everyone. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. I was not doing very well and this trip has literally saved my life. My fellow Warriors it was an honor to meet you guys. We tend to forget we have support all over this country, we always have an outlet. We are never too far gone, we matter! I was lucky enough and honored to catch 3 Muskie, a noble and elusive fish. I look forward to many more years of helping, listening, and teaching my brothers and sisters in arms. Thank you all again. I know I am leaving people out, but you will forever be a part of my family.
