Remembering on Memorial Day

For you American readers (that’s most of you, but not all), I wanted to send a shot out to our Vets. Thank you for your service.

When you think of Vets and fly fishing, Project Healing Waters comes to mind.  Here is a story about that fine organization from Outside Bozeman.

For almost a decade, news stations have inundated the American public with stories of wounded veterans returning from combat, only to face an uncertain future due to their newly-acquired injuries. We know that countless numbers of US service members return every day with life-changing wounds—both physical and emotional. But there is something most people don’t know: there are organizations right here in the Gallatin Valley that actively help wounded veterans recover and cope with their injuries.

Memorial Day

For those of us in the States, Memorial Day is here.  This is a day we honor the commitment and sacrifice made by those in our Armed Forces.  These days we have a lot of folks giving a lot in the name of our country.  It doesn’t really matter if you agree with the wars we are in or how we got there, you really can’t take anything away from the men and women who are wearing the uniform in some pretty inhospitable places.

Project Healing Waters is one of the groups supporting our veterans.  I watched an episode of Saltwater Experience where they took a couple of vets out on the waters of the Keys.

Thanks for your service, Vets!
