Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA
WWIA Lake Erie Fishing--
What made this trip special was the community involvement. As a Vietnam vet, I never had a welcome home parade. The parade was beyond my expectations. It started out with the rumbling roar of the bikers. The rumbling noise reminds me of assault helicopters coming in to provide support. The parade route was through town where the streets were lined with flag waving people.
They brought us to the American Legion for an awesome steak dinner. We walked into the dining hall through a 40-foot long line, double sided salute from the legion members.
Nothing in my heart could top that experience.
In two days I reeled in 20 walleye. Not even being a little kid in a candy store unleashed could compare to the experience.
We travel a lot in our RV following the BBQ diners. Our event was capped off by a final meal of all types of smoked meats (pulled pork, chicken, ribs and brisket).
I can't even remember getting the amount of hugs I received in the last two days.
Being a Vietnam vet, it was awesome to share with these 30-year old vets what they have to look forward to as they age.
Without the continuous support of family, I wouldn't be able to attend this event. Including my wife who helps me get dressed.
