Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation


Every event that WWIA provides to Warriors offers different atmospheres for relaxing, meeting new friends, having fun and learning. For example, a fly-fishing event to a secluded part of Montana offers a different environment than a that of a trophy walleye event in Ashtabula, OH. Both absolutely incredible events, but different healing environments. The WWIA 8th Annual Trophy Walleye Fishing event connected the Warriors with other Warriors but also Warriors with the entire supporting, loving, American community. The community support for this event has been unlike I have ever seen. The event is incredibly efficient, fostering unsurpassable support for WWIA, the Warriors and for their well being. Veteran Services Legion Riders, Police Officers, Fireman, The American Legion Hosts, Volunteers and Event Hosts all came together to provide a once in a lifetime, world class fishing event.
The Boat Captains provided the best Walleye fishing I’ve ever experienced. Fishing in this event was like living a Babe Winkleman fishing highlight video combined with a Kenny Chesney music video. We came together as strangers and left as family. Fishing with the Nam Vets was like fishing with your older brothers. I was/am blown away!
