FROM IDEA TO REALITY: THE EVOLUTION OF WOUNDED WATERS
Wounded Waters was started when Kevin took 1 Soldier out
fishing that changed his life forever. The Soldier he took fishing was a
typical good Soldier and liked fishing. After the day was over the young
Soldier told Kevin “Thank You” and Kevin thought nothing of it, Then the
Soldier said “No really Thank You” Kevin asked him why and what’s going on and the kid explained that he was planning on committing suicide that evening. Kevin sat down with the kid and talked and found that being out fishing talking with another veteran helped him deal with some issues. And that’s how the Wounded Waters idea was formed. Over the next few years Kevin continued to take Soldiers and Vets fishing and it started to grow large enough that we filled for 501©3 status with the IRS. The Non-Profit just recently moved down to FL and is doing trips on a regular basis.
