Review for Overseas Fishing, Boca Raton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
