LEEK HUNTING AND MOUNTAIN PRESERVE INC
November 2, 2011
I've known COLONEL Ed Fisher USA (ret), the co-founder of LEEK, since we served together at US Central Command in the 90s. There is not a more honorable or standup guy, or one who has done more with less to support wounded warriors. Ever since he first told me of his plan to build LEEK, I have supported his efforts both financially and by helping spread the word to other potential donors. These volunteers take nothing for themselves and always give 110%. Considering what the young men and women they are helping have been through, you would be hard pressed to find a more worthy cause to support.
Colonel Bill Kohnke, USAF (ret)
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Reading about the lives of the people they have touched and encouraged to overcome their injuries and wounds. Their stories inspire me whenever I think I'm having a tough time.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Try to tie it in with similar organizations around the country. It would be great if we could get a network of such groups going in every state or region. The VA, VFW, American Legion, NAUS, MOAA and other organizations might be able to help with any networking or affiliations.
Donor & I have provided financial support and have asked others to donate money. I've also advise veterans to seek them out for help.
