Veterans Day: Helping our Heroes Reconnect

By November 11, 2012

Follow me on:

Happy Veterans Day everyone.

Hope our veterans take an opportunity to get out and enjoy the outdoors, and maybe even get in some fall fly fishing this Veterans Day.

While I don't always agree with the wars our veterans were sent off to, I appreciate the service of our veterans.

I also appreciate how our communities rally around our veterans on days like today and throughout the year with programs like Warriors & Quiet Waters and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.

I don't write about these organizations a whole lot, because they pop up in the news on a weekly basis, but I think that's what makes these programs special.

They're regularly reaching out to veterans and wounded soldiers, and they help our heroes by allowing them to enjoy life in the outdoors with therapeutic hobbies like fly fishing.

So on this day, I salute our veterans and also the volunteers who are helping veterans reconnect with not only nature, and their communities, but with themselves (and a few hungry trout) as well.

Thanks for all you do.
