Take a Soldier Fishing
« on: September 12, 2010, 05:41:40 PM »

JACKSON HILL MARINA
TAKE A SOLDIER FISHING
PROGRAM OVERVIEW AND VISION
TAKE A SOLDIER FISHING IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE ACTIVE MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET AWAY TO SPEND TIME IN THE OUTDOORS FISHING, RELAXING AND INTERACTING WITH THEIR PEERS AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY.
OUR FOCUS IS PRIMARILY ON RETURNING SOLDIERS SUFFERING FROM POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER AND TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY. MANY OF THESE MEN AND WOMEN ALONG WITH FAMILY MEMBERS ARE FACING THE TRANSITION FROM WARRIOR TO CITIZEN.  OUR GOAL IS TO GIVE THESE HEROS A FEW PRECIOUS DAYS TO ENJOY THE BEAUTY AND SERENITY OF SAM RAYBURN LAKE.
WE HAVE BEEN BLESSED BY THE GENEROSITY OF OUR SPONSORS AND CONTINUE TO SEEK DONATIONS AND EVENT SPONSORS TO EXPAND OUR PROGRAM.  WE ALSO NEED THE HELP OF OUR LOCAL ANGLERS AND BASS CLUBS TO VOLUNTEER THEIR TIME TO TAKE OUR SERVICE MEMBERS FISHING.
OUR VISION IS TO EXPAND THIS PROGRAM TO INCLUDE MORE EVENTS, COUPLE GETAWAYS AND OFFER OTHER NONTRADITIONAL PEER AND SELF HELP THERAPY, MEETINGS AND GATHERINGS.  WE ALSO PLAN TO HOST FUNDRAISING FISHING TOURNAMENTS TO SUPPORT OUR MILITARY FAMILIES.
WE ARE CURRENTLY USING THE EXISTING FACILITIES OF JACKSON HILL PARK AND MARINA TO HOST OUR EVENTS AND ARE IN THE PLANNING STAGE OF OUR NEW WARRIOR’S REUNION CENTER.  THIS INCLUDES A PAVILION, RECREATION AREA, ADDITIONAL LODGING AND A HIKING AND BIKING TRAIL THAT WILL BE USED FOR OUR EVENTS, OTHER VETERANS GROUPS AND PRIVATE FUNCTIONS WITH PROFITS GOING TO SUPPORT OUR MILITARY FAMILY PROGRAMS.
OUR NEXT EVENT IS OCTOBER 2, 2010 AND WE NEED BOATERS.
