|Montana husker||I do not want to hijack your thread, but I would encourage you all to check out Montana Warriors On The Water. They were started a few years back with the help of Walleye's Unlimited here in Montana. They have hosted numerous service members the past few years with a weeklong fishing trip on Ft. Peck this summer, scheduled for late July this year. They also have other activities through out the year. They have a face book page that gives a lot more info, please check it out.|

|mtwalleyeguy78||Thats a great idea! I just purchased a boat and live in Bozeman. I go solo a lot and told my wife I would love to get involved with a group or even start something that would help vets get out on the water. Love the idea!|

There is a group out of port Clinton oh called walleyes for wounded heroes. They take Purple Heart vets and police and ems folks who have been injured in line of duty on a 4 day trip each June. I volunteer my boat and take on hero. Together we get about 100 heroes heroes on the water. This is 100% free to them with exception of license. Food lodging and all also covered. Great experience. Consider helping out in this effort.
If you can't actually take a hero, consider donating or even donating gear you no longer use which they will auction. Boat captains volunteer their boat, fuel and time and I can tell you that we captains get more b
Ack then we give. BTW I say captains, but I'm just a regular guy with a 19' Starcraft. Bottom line, we just want to get these heroes together and on the water.
Walleyes for wounded heroes has a Facebook page. MArk Romanik (Host of Fishing 411) participates each year and films a show there. Merry Christmas to all!

|gofishwalleye||As a retired, disabled vet myself I applaud your efforts and hope we can help you fill your boat. Getting the word out is the key|

The very best times I have had on the water over the past few years has been with fellow vets. Like you said about the twinkle in their eyes, the outdoors is magical. It is part of our being as humans IMO.

Thank you sir!
Just wanted to say thank you to you for thinking to do this.
I work in a hospital and encounter ill, hurting, dying, confused or sad elderly every day. I learned early to try to find the "person" behind the illness, and I have been purposeful in bringing up "fishing" and "backwoods adventures" as I do the work with the patient that I need to do. Very rarely do these topics not illicit thoughts of very good times and I see a twinkle in an eye where there once was not.
