LEEK HUNTING AND MOUNTAIN PRESERVE INC
November 1, 2011

I am writing this about my husband, who was a Wounded Warrior. In order to try and get help my husbad resocialize, I started looking for hunting and fishing trips that were sponsored. I stumbled upon LEEK by accident. Mr. Fisher & the LEEK family have been amazing. Jim had a wonderful time & enjoyed himself immensely. It was more than the cool free stuff & the hunting though. It was more about the understanding & compassion shown to the Wounded Warriors that made the difference. My husband spoke of one instance where he had a "melt down" while riding on the bus going somewhere. In an instant, the bus was stopped, my husband was ministered to without pity or derision or scorn. His needs were met & his transportation needs were still met. He was still able to participate in the event. So many people don't understand head injuries & PTSD. These folks do. It helps that Ed & his brother are ex-military. They've been there & done that before so they "get it". They are showing understanding and appreciaton for the Soldier when they didn't get it for their service. Thank God our Nation has learned to differentiate between the Soldier & the war. It is because of people like Ed Fisher & the LEEK foundation this has happened. I can't thank them enough. Words just don't cover how we appreciate them.
