I thought I would drop you a quick line to say THANKS for a great event. The new friendships were all good and catching fish was just a bonus. I had a great time.

Jay, Just wanted to say thanks for doing this for the vets, and coming to the fox chain. Hopefully a day on the water, and the lunch/ceremony have them a day to relax, clear their heads,and get away. You guys are doing a really nice job, and I think the TAVF concept is great. This was my first time volunteering to guide, and I plan to do it again, possibly Madison on 6/14. The vet I took out was Ben Meyers, was a 12 year Army vet, and really seemed to have a good time. His wife and 4 small kids came up at noon to meet us and see the fish we caught and have lunch, they were thrilled.they got a nice cooler of white bass and a catfish to chill their freezer. I attached a couple of pics of our catch,( Ben is in center of first pic) my friend Bernie jumped in with us and caught a 36" musky on 4lb test and a tiny roster tail spinner! looking forward to volunteering again

Jay, as my first event, me and my friends are always skeptical of any event that is touted for PTSD. I have to say I was still until the chow time. My buddy Charles and I both suffer with a high degree of SC PTSD and found you put on a first class event. My guide was outstanding and very classy. I was glad to be on his boat. Thanks again for the chance to participate.

Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed this Sunday, you made an old guy really happy. Was very moved by your words about vets and freedom, keep up the good work both on the water and off. Thanks again and I would love doing it again sometime.

Jay, This was my first year being able to work with your team and participate in a TAVF event. I was able to be a guide for both the Madison and Camp Hometown Heroes events. I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for all that you and this organization do. I am a vet myself and I truly appreciate anyone that supports our veterans. Most vets do not look for any special recognition, but any that they do get is most appreciated. You have an outstanding team and the events I have attended have been unbelievably well run. So, thank you for everything that you do. I am 100% behind what you do and I want to support you in any way that I can. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help. Thank you,

You and your volunteers did an excellent job of setting everything up and I thought it went off smoothly. Congratulations to all of you for a job well done. I told our AM VETS post down here about what you did and made them aware that your organization exists.

Thank you very much for such an amazing weekend! My dad had a time that he will never forget. From his decision to attend, to the flexibility of changing the launch time, to Kevin coming to our hotel so he could meet my dad so he is familiar with who he is, to the barbeque. So incredible. Kevin even gave my dad one of his hand made poles. My dad was speechless. The part that really hit home is when you had the kids go up by the veterans and then turn around to look at the "real" heroes. That was so impactful. Thank you.
