Getting warriors back on their feet one fly fish at a time — Warriors and Quiet Waters

For many warriors the battle doesn’t end when they leave the battlefield and many organizations across the country are stepping up to help wounded veterans.

Warriors and Quiet Waters is one of those organizations. The group, based in Bozeman, Montana, helps soldiers recuperate by teaching them to fly fish. They started the week long program back in 2007 and have since seen hundreds of soldiers pass through their rivers.

Tom O’Connor is the Vice President and Secretary of the Warriors and Quiet Waters. He told Chris Dorobek on the DorobekINSIDER program how the program got started.

It costs $3,800 to outfit, train and provide travel for each warrior. This summer the program will host 54 veterans.

Warriors on Quiet Waters was profiled in a documentary “The Journey Home.”

All this week the DorobekINSIDER will be profiling different Veterans organization.

Yesterday, we talked with Sandy Lehmkuhler, founder and executive director of the Warrior Foundation. The Warrior Foundation serves those that serve the US

That looks like a great program. I imagine it provides good peace of mind and having a goal to focus on (catching fish) is always good as well.
