The Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing class at Battle Creek's VA Medical Center recently went on their annual fall salmon trip.
This weekend was amazing. A huge thank you goes out to all of you who helped make everything go so smoothly! This year we extended the Salmon Slam to include a Friday Big Fish competition. It was $50 per boat and the pot was split with 50% going to the boat that caught the biggest fish and the other 50% going back to the Salmon Slam event.
It was a beautiful day to go fishing.

May 22-24--So many of the events that come about for the benefit of our disabled veterans could never be right, except for the great efforts of so many who make it all possible, with their persistent appeals for the best. I wish to give deeply felt thanks to all of you for making it happen.

On May 15, 2013 after having to reschedule from the rainy weather the prior month, the Murfreesboro Chapter of PHW out of the TN Valley Region, held its annual outing in Normandy, TN.
Tuesday, June 6-11. The trip started when friend Jim and I caravanned to the Warm Springs Indian Reservation for a two day Project Healing Waters outing. Both Jim and I have volunteered for PHW Washington events, but this was our first for an Oregon event. This PHW event is hosted by an Indian family (Greene) in Warm Springs, and they did do it right! The setting is a valley, probably flooded at high water, right along the Deschutes River. Lodging for those who need it was canvas teepees with all the trappings…very cool.
