This NPO gives back by providing a day to step away from the daily stress and through the camaraderie of Veterans on a day fishing see everything with a different perspective.
At a time when I was at an extremely low point in my PTSD depression, isolation, in total dispair, and considering suicide, I learned of the Overseas Fishing organization. I reached out to them, and I thank God I did. I was contacted by James very shortly after reaching out. Looking forward to reconnecting with fellow veterans gave me hope I hadn't had for a very long time. Just the night before our fishing trip, I was, again, seriously considering suicide. James was persistent that this trip was going to happen, and I literally had to force myself to do it. Connecting with fellow veterans who understand as nobody else can is indescribable. The fishing trip showed me that there are those like us who understand, who care, that I can have a life again. That day literally changed my life, and most likely saved my life.
I hope to stay connected with James and the organization as a way to reach out to my brothers and sisters who face similar and like struggles and challenges. This was a therapeutic healing experience like nothing the VA or any other type agency could ever provide. I'm happy to be alive today to tell of this life changing experience.
God bless you and thank you, James, and Overseas Fishing.

Overseas embodies the creed no man or woman left behind. Sometimes after sacrificing for our country, our country forgets about us. It's great that there are people like overseas out there taking care of veterans, reminding us of why we signed up in the first place. I appreciate everything you did for me and my fellow brothers and sisters in arms. Keep up the amazing work!
What a fantastic organization. Veterans give their lives for us, now we can help them enjoy a day of fishing and relaxation.
Great cause to donate.
Overseas Fishing went far beyond my expectations. This organization definitely deserves recognition . SSG Dolan and Ms. Franklin are very passionate about their dedication to serving veterans. Their work is very much appreciated and deserves to be recognized. Fishing is a passion of mine and Overseas definitely provided me with a day to remember the rest of my life. Thank you Cpt. Bouncer and Overseas Fishing for an incredible experience!
This is an amazing organization and I'm am PROUD to be a part of it! They are dedicated to helping our beloved and sometimes forgotten veterans. A worthy cause run by beyond worthy people!!!!!!
helping those who gave up and are giving up so much, for the people of the greatest nation in the world. This is the least we the people can do is give back to the veterans. To those who served and currently serving I SALUTE you! Thank you
I really enjoyed the entire experience overall. The whole concept of Overseas Fishing is incredible - would definitely recommend this program. The experience itself is phenomenal.
Granted, fishing is an age-old pastime brought down from generation to generation for the purposes of survival. So too is being a soldier in the Armed Forces, serving for our country: it's continued on for survival and for dutiful pride of all generations who have served before. Fishing conjures the peacefulness, tranquility, and sense of comfort that reminds a newly returning soldier what it feels like to be home again--fighting fishing lines, not enemy lines.
Great time fishing with the veterans. Great organization with a great cause.
Overseas Fishing is all about getting veterans out for some fishing and relaxation. It was my pleasure to have been part of a great experience on the water. Thanks for all you do!
Very transparent and meaningful non-profit organization, who is making a difference in the Combat Wounded Veteran community, by taking them out fishing with quality professional inshore and off shore fishing guides at no cost to the Veteran...
