I wanted to take a moment to give you and your volunteers a big thanks for all you do! ! The events you set up and the time all of you put in is absolutely amazing! For me, these events are life changing! They mean more then I can put into words! They give me hope to be able to find a way of life after my injuries and my military retirement. You and your team give us purpose to get up and to be a part of something again! Until our next event... many thanks! - Lena R.
"I cannot Thank you enough for these wonderful opportunities you have allowed me to be a part of and please know that my fallen brothers are with me on every outing in my thoughts and and my heart. Bob & Scott (a volunteer) were really good down to earth people they talked to us like normal guys not less than them or some kind of damaged goods. I really appreciate everything they are doing out there and have been telling all of my fellow brothers about the work you all do. unfortunately, most of them are still in that dark place I was not all that long ago and do not wish to partake in the world yet. I understand and sympathize with them more than any person on this earth should ever have to but i feel it is a greater honor to our fallen brothers that we live life and take advantage of every opportunity offered to us and to be the best we can in our lives to really honor their sacrifice and hold their memory" high. Thank you again so much."

"I just wanted to thank you guys again for the event this past Sunday at colder weather outfitters. There was a huge difference in my client from the car ride up to firestone versus the trip back. That outing boosted his spirit and his morale in a wonderful way. It also got him some exercise and, in many ways rejuvenated him. You're making a difference and i personally appreciate what you’re doing for vets."

"I had an amazing time! Chuck made the transportation ans organization for the trip very easy. The fishing and scenery was amazing and Peter (our guide) made us feel like family. This seems more like a reunion than a professionally guided trip (which it also was!). Again, thank you for making this possible. This became one of those vacations I'll remember forever and absolutely one of those where I returned home feeling rested invigorated at the same time.

Coming to these events is always so much fun! It's great to get out, do, see, and experience things with my family we may not normally do. Tt's also great to watch others with their families. These are the types of things that can change someone's outlook on life for the better."
