“The opportunity given to the Service Members this weekend was astounding. Many non-profits and other organizations attempt to contribute to Service Members, your Program “Take A Warrior Fishing” actually contributed and influenced.” – Warrior, Canyon Lake, TX

2016 Event Recap
The 4th Take A Warrior Fishing event was held on Caesar Creek Reservoir on August 27, 2016. The event was coordinated for the 3rd year by Russell Curtis, Caesar Creek Park Ranger and Marine Veteran.
62 Veterans were able to participate, many fished from shore and some fished from boats, but most seemed to enjoy being around each other and catching up on old stories. Colonel Chris Beck, the Louisville District Commander, and his wife Sally attended the event and gave support for all of the Veterans attending. The event is very well organized and 33 volunteers assisted the Veterans with everything from coffee and doughnuts at sign in, to fitting life jackets and helping with fishing bait.
Lunch was provided by the J.T.M. Food Group and a live band entertained the Veterans as they enjoyed some great BBQ. Colonel Beck thanked all of the Veterans and all were acknowledged for their service.
