The PHW Spotlight is our way of shining a bright light on those members of our PHW family whose accomplishments and contributions inspire us all.
These individuals, and their stories, are an essential part of the healing journey happening for Veterans across the country. Project Healing Waters transcends fly fishing and these Spotlights are a glimpse into what is happening throughout our programs. We are honored to share these with you each week.
Five years and counting, but I will continue as long as I can cast a fly!
In 2018, a friend and fellow Veteran told me about the Project Healing Waters Program. Pun intended: I was hooked. It filled a void that I didn’t realize I had. I now never want to miss our gatherings and events in and around Wasilla.
Fly fishing and the peaceful feeling while outdoors on the lakes and rivers. It has been a therapy that I did not know I needed.
I always look forward to interaction with fellow Veterans and the strong camaraderie that we share. While it’s hard to put into words the program’s full impact, it brings a type of peace and comfort to me being around those I call my brothers.
