My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, Bozeman, MT, USA
I am a veteran that first experienced the program as a participant. It came at a time when I had been retired and struggling away from military life and fellow veterans. The fishing is a focus for WQW, but for those who attend, it is more than that. For me it was a weeks worth of mental recordings, that allowed me to play back when I would have rough days. The people who run the program, the volunteers, and the guides, do an outstanding job! I still keep in contact with my guide.
I was able to go back the following year with my wife. The program is always adapting to the needs of the veterans. I was the companion to my wife. They taught her how to fly fish. That was a miracle! It was another great bonding experience between my wife and i, and our bonding with other military couples.
The bottom line is there is no stress or pressure to fish or do other activities. No group or couples sessions. Just the ability to enjoy nature in the best possible way, fly fishing with other wounded veterans. Now, I begin the journey to volunteer for them.
