Greeting all,

Over last 2 years I have been putting together some outdoor opportunities for Wounded Warriors to get outdoors and take their mind off their injuries and recovery problems.
I started with things I knew, Turkey and Deer hunting. As time has gone by, I have found some other opportunities for them.

Now some have expressed some fresh water fishing interest.

Anyone able to provide a fishing event for these great Wounded Warriors?

I have a Non Profit Organization that has started working to assist with these events. So if any of you do not have the capability to provide an event, but would still loke to assist, please see below:

All,
This is a great organization. They have done some great trips for the Wounded Warriors.

I had the privilege of helping to coordinate a Turkey Hunt in Kirkmansville, KY 3 weeks ago.
There were 9 Wounded Warriors on the hunt, and 7 killed a Gobbler. Of the 7, 5 had never Turkey Hunted before, and 2 had never hunted at all before. Everyone one of them enjoyed their time.
After they killed their birds, they were treated to a day of fishing on a private 50 acre stocked lake.
All lodging and food was donated for the weekend event.
If everyone on here just donated $10.00 (less than cost of a 12pk), that would allow the organization to pay for transportation to the hunts for the Wounded Warriors, Cost of out of state licenses, Lodging on trips, Meals, and also small gifts to present each Wounded Warrior.

www.friendsofamericanheroes.org

They are planning Father/Son, Father/Daughter, Mother/Son, Mother/Daughter, events for the future. Taking widowed spouses who want to try the outdoors because their spouse enjoyed it.
This organization is not like some that have 6 million dollars on the books and Staff earns $100,000, to 650,000 a year working for a Non-Profit.

As it states on the Website, if can't give money, can you provide land for an event, or your time to assist in a hunt is greatly needed.
I know money is tight under the current administration, but couldn't you spare something to assist in getting these great deserving Wounded Warriors outdoors, and take their mind off their problems while recovering from their injuries?

Thank you all for your time and consideration.
I believe in what they are doing, and have seen the positive outcome with my own eyes.

So hit this site, and give a little. (everything helps.)
