I was happy to welcome Gayle Whittenberg, the Development Director, of Warriors and Quiet Waters to the Morning Show.

You can hear the entire interview here:

Warriors And Quiet Waters is a non-profit program for decorated combat veterans who are going through some tough times returning to civilian life.

Combat veterans might have physical handicaps or mental issues as a result of serving in a combat area.

Veterans spend six days at the Quiet Warriors Ranch and learn fly fishing, bonding, and just relaxing their minds and bodies.

The Quiet Warriors Ranch is open between April and October to receive veterans who pay nothing for the experience.

Airfare, food, lodging at the ranch, fly fishing gear they can take with them after their experience is all provided by donations and grants.

No taxpayer money is used and Warriors and Quiet Waters are not affiliated with any government military organization.

Semper Fly

No, that’s not a typo. It’s the name of WQW’s fundraiser scheduled for September 22-23, 2017.

Semper Fly 2017, a two-day, all-inclusive Montana fly fishing experience designed for the passionate anglers to support post-9/11 combat warriors.

You’ll be fishing with some fly fishing legends and pick up some great fishing tips.

Volunteers Needed

While the WQW staff is only five people, it takes many volunteers to take care of our veterans. Anyone who likes to cook would be very welcome. Volunteers also act as companions, or fishing buddies.

Over 100 volunteers are needed and the current volunteers come from all over the country to help out.

If you’d like to volunteer to help these brave veterans contact WQW at their website or call 406-585-9793
