Spencer M.’s Testimonial

As a kid I had always heard great thing to include many tall tales about fishing in Alaska from my father. Thanks to Send-A-Vet I was able to create my own amazing stories and tall tales to pass along to my children. This trip was such a blessing and the scenery and backdrop with the 100s of Bald Eagles in the background as the fog lifted from the water is something I will never forget. The Camaraderie I experienced on the boat with fellow Brothers in arms was irreplaceable and could not have come at a better time. I am beyond grateful for the opportunity and I know my family is equally grateful to see the best of me again upon my return. Thank you.

Alaska Fishing Trip with Send-A-Vet Foundation

     I am a U.S. Army retiree with over 22 years of service with disabilities. I have a true love for fishing, hunting and the outdoors. I was lucky enough to find the great organization Send-A-Vet. They gave me a once in a life time opportunity to go to Alaska on a Halibut fishing trip. I was select with five others disabled vets to go to Rocky Point Resort in Petersburg, AK. This foundation paid for our airfare and The Resort donated the charter, food, lodging, and fish packing. This trip had Little or no expense to the veterans. I experience things that you only see on TV like glaciers, turquoise glacier waters, otters, killer whales, dolphins, huge halibut, and scenery that no words can describe.

     This trip also gave me something I had been missing, camaraderie. After many leave the service, we will never connect with people of this mind set. It was sure nice to be with people with similar experiences and talk about them. Not very many people in the world we can connect to like other service members even from different branches service.

           

Thanks, Send-A-Vet
