ARMED SERVICES YMCA OF THE USA
March 25, 2010
I got involved with the Armed Services YMCA of Alaska in 2007 while trying to create a fishing tournament that would take returning Combat Veterans fishing for a day out of Seward Alaska. In the process of trying to get information out of the Military Bases about how many people they would be able to make available, I was directed to the ASYMCA to use as a liaison. After that first very successfull year I have partnered up with the ASYMCA and continue to take upwards of 400 returning Combat Veterans fishing each year. I was asked to be a board member in 2009 and was very happy to accept, I am involved in several non-profits but none that make me as proud as the ASYMCA of Alaska.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being there when our service members return home.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the over-whelming community involvement.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
be even better than it is today!
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
