Default Heroes On The Water

I first heard about this program at the Forgotten Coast Anglers Tourney last spring. We also had some HOW info at the Gulf Coast Kayak Fishing Association tourney.
Recently I read a story about a wounded vet whose head injuries caused her to have no memory of the day before. After going on a HOW kayak fishing trip, the next day she remembered being on the kayak. Her caregivers were blown away by the improvement in memory.
I've been kicking around the idea of starting a local chapter.
Post and/or PM if you are interested in throwing in!

Farmer, we are starting a chapter here in Panama City, since we are about 2 hrs away not sure if we should just have a gulf chapter or one in each city, let me know your thoughts and also I can email Jim and ask him. This is an amazing thing and I cried when I read over all the stories. I've always found fishing to be therapeutic but never knew to what level...

That's great news about the PC chapter. Maybe one chapter would work if we could reach the guys/gals in P'Cola too. Lets talk!

I would like to work with you on this. I will be returning from deployment in Afghanistan in the next few days. I live in the Pensacola area also. I have some prior experience working with wounded and disabled vets.

I received a couple of PMs but other stuff caused this to be on the back burner. I'd like to move this up in my priorities! If you are interested then contact me via PM or call my cell if I've already responded with my number.
