Heading to PA on Sunday with Project Healing Waters, We are a guest of Dominion Power who has donated the money to make this happen. We will be staying at Evergreen Farms and fishing the Private waters of Spruce Creek. I know this is a controvertial issue with lots of people but, for the sake of the soldiers, this will be a great time. We will start fishing on through Wednesday.

There will be plenty of food, fun, raffles, gifts and lots of friendship going on. I can't wait.

Hope you and the soldiers have a great time. As for private water, its perfect for an event like this, easy access, plenty of fish. The goal is to make these guys forget about all the BS they've gone through, and just maybe pass on the passion that is flyfishing. If private waters can provide that, then its all good. These guys have been to hell, experienced it, got the crap blown out of themselves, and somehow survived. Any idiot that would bitch because they are fishing private water needs to, well, i just cant say it here.
Enjoy your time with these guys, i hope i can volunteer someday if i have enough time.

I will have a great time. By the way, I am not a volunteer, I am a Iraq Veteran myself and 65% disabled. I have been struggling for 3 years with PTSD, Depression, Anxiety and severe back issues. With all the doctors, Phsyciatrist, Phsycologist, drug rehab. spinal injections with little results. One trip with PHW has done more for me than all of that. They got me out of the house because I also suffer from Agoraphobia and got me fishing again. Since then I have tried to get out atleast once or twice a week. This is a great Organization.

Thanks guys. It's funny. PHW started at Walter Reed when one Dr. decided he needed to do something for these soldiers who were suffering with PTSD and could not concentrate. It started out as fly tying in which the soldiers needed to focus thier attention and it was such a sucess that it bacame what it is today. It is a very relaxing time away from always thinking and being depressed. I for one am glad for the program.
