We’re honored to share a beautiful short film from Shell Rotella as part of their UnSung film series that celebrates hard working individuals.  Filmed over a few days with Clear Path for Veterans,, the film highlights Vietnam veteran Ed Veaudry and the Syracuse, NY Program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing as they work together to bring our unique form of therapy to disabled veterans in their community.

The PHWFF Syracuse, NY Program has long partnered with Clear Path for Veterans to collectively further their positive impact on the local veterans community through offering restorative programs and services.

With you by our side, we can continue to provide a program that helps disabled veterans like Ed Veaudry find their healing waters. Make a donation >


About the film

“In 1968, Edward Veaudry was drafted to the U.S. Army and during his service he transported over 400 deceased GI’s to Saigon where they were taken home to US soil. Years after his own return, Ed joined Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF), an organization dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing. He now works with other disabled veterans in PHWFF programs as the Northern NY Regional Coordinator.”

In 2005, PHWFF began by serving the wounded returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. It has since expanded nationwide, establishing its highly successful program in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers. PHWFF has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled, through its successful application of the sport of fly fishing as a rehabilitation tool. Since their founding, over 10,000 disabled veterans have participated in PHWFF programs thanks to over 4,000 volunteers who have dedicated over 1.7 million hours of their time. Project Healing Waters works hard.

Shell ROTELLA is committed to making sure that hard working individuals like Ed Veaudry can count on our engine oils. Unsung: a life in the day of hard work. A Shell Rotella hardworking experience.
