Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation


First of all, I would like to say many thanks to everyone who made this weekend possible. I am extremely humbled by the generosity of the people who donated their time, funding and resources. Walleye fishing is something I’ve wanted to experience for a long time and you guys made that happen. But more importantly the opportunity for fellowship and many laughs. My face and my diaphragm are sore from laughing so much, something I haven’t done in a long time. This weekend came at the perfect time as I have been struggling with many things. Now I feel as though I am somehow more equipped with a better mindset to handle the many things that need my attention and more importantly, begin to heal and strengthen relationships with those closest to me. This foundation has further solidified my belief that there is no parallel to the healing in the outdoors I’ve found with other veterans and outdoorsman. Thank you again.

I want to say thank you to everybody involved in making this event possible. I am truly grateful for being able to come fishing and meet and connect with new veterans. It was one of the best experiences I have had in a long time. I struggle with anxiety and being around people I do not know. Coming here, everybody was very friendly and nice. I am very thankful for that. Going out on the boats for the weekend and catching a lot of fish was really awesome and relaxing. Thank you to the WWIA for allowing me to go on this event and have an awesome experience and meet new people.

Thank you for the fishing trip, a chance at meeting other vets from different wars and finding out more about WWIA. I will remember this for the rest of my life.
