Why Project Healing Waters Fly-Fishing?
My perspective on the opportunity to join the Board of Trustees of PHWFF is rooted in the confluence of two important passions that I hold near to my heart. First, and most importantly, is the principle of honor and service above one’s self. I have always held service in high regard, from my early years as a Boy Scout, through my time as a volunteer fire fighter, and most importantly during my time as a cadet at the Virginia Military Institute. In my opinion, there is no higher service than defending the freedom of our great country and I believe that the work that PHWFF does is critically important to supporting those who have made such tremendous sacrifices for our freedom. The second, is my passion for fly-fishing. I believe there is nothing more therapeutic than spending time on the water, allowing the grace of a river to wash over you and bring new life. I don’t think there could be a better activity to provide the healing support that our warriors need. For these reasons, I see this program as a great place for me to give back. I am not a veteran of our military, but I have many friends and relatives who are, and I possess a tremendous respect for all who have served. They have a critical need for support, and it is incumbent upon those of us who have long enjoyed the freedoms that they have sacrificed to preserve to support and care for them in any way we can. I view the opportunity to serve PHWFF as a wonderful way to leverage my strengths and talents to give back, albeit in a relatively small way by comparison, to our veterans.
