Let us never forget!! This day, 19 years ago, changed everyone’s life! Many of you on this page joined the military because of today.
19 years ago, I was in basic training, in Fort Benning, GA training to become an Infantryman. It was still a peacetime army, and I thought I’d join to get college money, and finally fulfill a lifelong dream of being in the army. I’ll never forget that day. Our Drill Sergeants came running into the training bay with a TV, and told us to get up there now! Just as he turned it on, we saw the second plane hit the tower. He immediately looked at us sitting there in shock, and said your training just got real. We’re going to war! He was right! This day, 19 years ago, changed my life forever! As it did to most of you. In the words of the great Allen Jackson, “where were you when the world stopped turning, that September day?”

What an awesome day fishing with veterans in Traverse City, Michigan this past weekend!

“We had a very fun and adventurous trip around Traverse City targeting Smallmouth Bass!!

As soon as we got on the water a severe thunderstorm hit us hard and fast and we had to head in for about an hour to let the storm blow over. But after that the trip was back on and we fished ALL DAY! We stopped for lunch, of course, but then we were back at it until the last few vets were ready to call it a day.

We can’t thank Brian Eavey enough and the other boat captains for donating their time to take our veterans out.” -Andrew Comtois, UVA Michigan Rep

Keep an eye out for more Michigan trips to be posted by our rep, Andrew Comtois.

What a fun filled day on the Lehigh River with veterans and their families! We had a total of 20 people hitting rapids and enjoying some calm water. It was relaxed, some good laughs along with conversations. This was a good break for a day to reset and enjoy the water along with the views of the mountains.

We owe gratitude to Whitewater Adventures in Nesquehoning PA for sponsoring this day for all the veterans plus their families!! Top notch business and outfit.

Today, we had the pleasure of taking 5 very deserving veterans to Lake Erie to fish for walleye! This trip would not have been possible without the extreme generosity and incredible hard work of Cpt. Shannon Wood of Lake Erie Fishing Charters with Erie Adventures Charters, and Cpt. Andy Kissinger of Chasin Tail Sportfishing and Waterfowl!

The deserving veterans were;
United States Army and Vietnam veteran, Harold Morrison, who was able to land his first ever walleye!

United States Army, Vietnam AND Afghanistan veteran, Jack Boggs. Jack served during BOTH Vietnam and Afghanistan! He is one of the nicest and most humble guys you could ever meet!

United States Army, 82nd Airborne, and Afghanistan veteran, John Copeland. John was able to land his first ever walleye!

United States Air Force and Afghanistan veteran Kyle Miller. Kyle was also able to land his first ever walleye!!

Unites States Army, and Cold War era veteran Rick Schnuerer.

The vets were able to catch their limit of 6 fish each, and all came home with some fresh walleye fillets! There was lots of camaraderie among the vets, and a ton of laughs and jokes! I think it’s safe to say they all had a pretty good time on the lake!

We would also like to thank Cabela's for their generous donation of hats, lights and license holders for each veteran!

They finished their day on the lake with a great meal at Crabby Joe's. Thank you to all their staff for taking good care of everyone, and for all the delicious appetizers and meals!
