Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA
I had an Amazing Fishing trip to Alaska, I have a few injuries from the military and a little anxiety so traveling to unknown places is a pain, but the WWIA organization had the trip and needs of the trip so organized I didn’t panic once thanks to the vast information I packed enough meds and appropriate clothing for the type of climate.
The group I was with was awesome! We got to talking and reminiscing about some funny times while deployed and also some sad ones. It was a really good experience for some of those guys to tell their stories about how they are navigating through civilian life: It felt like I known this group of people for many years.
This trip helped me a lot mentally and physically. It let me know that I need to work on some things physically, but also that I can still do so much even with my injuries. Speaking and seeing how other with similar injuries go through life also helped a lot.
The Seward Alaska views where amazing: we got to see bold eagles, whales and even a sea otters! The fishing was so incredible for me. I was nervous about fishing because my back injuries and the use of my hands is not as good as it used to be, but even I caught a few fish (which always puts a smile on my face) myself. The Captain in charge of the boat, John Saline was very professional and incredibly knowledgeable and was there to address our concerns while we were underway.
The Wounded Warrior In Action is an amazing organization, I am very thankful that I got to be a part of it, and I was very honored to have been chosen to go in this trip. I’m especially grateful that I was able to meet other veterans as well as the organizers of the trip. This is a trip that I am going to remember for the rest of my life & thank you all so much for your hard work & dedication.
