Testimonials

Thank you WWIA! When I got the call to see if I wanted to attend this great event hosted by John and Becky, I was so happy that someone finally had something for us women who served. This experience cannot be put into words. Some people on the outside of the military don’t understand the feelings you have when you are with another service member of like experiences. How that connection just links you together, you don’t even have to now their name or story, you just feel the connection. That is what I miss the most from my service. Thank you WWIA for allowing me to experience that again.

I would like to say thank you to WWIA and to our Hosts, John and Ms. Becky for allowing me this great opportunity. The past week has been amazing. I’ve gotten to know other veterans and talk about similar stories and some of our struggles. It feels like I’ve known them for years. Fishing in Seward, Alaska has been an amazing experience, the beautiful scenery was breathtaking, the fishing was amazing as well. I have issues with my hands and even I was able to catch fish. This is an experience I am going to remember for the rest of my life, thank you!

I wanted to say thank you very much to both Wounded Warriors in Action and Hosts, John and Becky. What an unbelievable experience this was. It was a very comfortable and very well coordinated trip thanks to Corrina and Joe Liddell. Everyone was extremely helpful and professional. Such an amazing crew! I will never forget this trip, not only because of the great fishing, hospitality and scenery but the camaraderie, conversations and the obvious gratitude to disabled veterans. This organization makes it very clear that we are not fighting our battles alone. Thank you very much Wounded Warriors in Action and John Moline.

George and I have been on so many trips together with several different organizations. I have to say this fishing trip is at the top of the list. The Host and everyone involved has been outstanding! The boaters were fantastic and deserve a huge thank you for donating their time and equipment. A thank you is also given to the families of everyone involved in this chance of a lifetime, as they sacrificed time from their loved ones in order to give us another stepping stone in our healing. Every aspect of this trip for us was very thought out and planned so we would have an exciting and healing trip! Thank you to everyone and we hope we can experience another trip with you.

It has been 5 years since I’ve seen this crew of AL-In/offshore, but it felt like it’s been only a week. These folks are as good as it gets. Alex, Joe, Ryan are new brothers and Nate Allen made this event perfect. The fishing was great, the weather was great, the food was great, it just can’t get any better. Thank you to WWIA and Ritchie Russell & crew. I had the perfect weekend. God Bless America.

This was my second event out with WWIA. I can’t put into words how much I enjoyed the fishing, 2 bull reds and 6 big snappers. Mark and Nate are very good at what they do, it was great to make new friends Ryan and Alex. The Hosts and Guides are the best people.

This was my first time to be able to make it to a fishing event. I would like to thank everyone who was able to help put this together. I had such a great time and I would never be able to do this on my own. Meeting all the other military vets was awesome. WWIA, thanks again. I appreciate the effort, everyone went above and beyond, and I’m blessed to be able to meet Mark, Joe, Nate, and Alex. Great company, Great time.

I want to thank WWIA so much for this event it did more for me than anything has in a long time. I was able to enjoy the outdoors again. For years I have been isolated and not doing the things I love in life. This event will stay with me to help me along my journey. Nate and Mark did an amazing job, without them this weekend the event could not have happened or went the way it did. What you all are doing for vets makes me proud to serve this great country. Your organization went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you for also having Joe and Ryan on this event, they are great guys who I enjoyed my time with. I also enjoyed my time with the hosts of this event Ira, Ritchie, Mark, Keith, Joseph and Porter.

Thank you all for this great experience. All the people involved were beyond courteous and kind. It was nice to learn so much from the guides. I would have to say this is more than a fishing trip. Thankyou Mark for all the time you put in to this event. It was a blessing to be picked to come out and experience this weekend with you guys. Love all of you.
