Heroes on the Water

Bryan Anondson - Saturday, May 02, 2015

Friday, May 1st I was able to assist, along with Headwaters Adventure Company and many other volunteers, the first of many Heroes on the Water events for the Northern California area. I'll start off by giving a brief description of HOW (Heroes on the Water).  Founded in 2007, HOW helps our wounded warriors to recover from the stress of combat and the recovery process that is involved with protecting our nation. I believe very strongly in giving back to the people that serve our great country and this is a way that I believe is very beneficial in the recovery process of these men and women.


"Many men fish all their lives without ever realizing that it is not the fish they are after." - Henry David Thoreau


There is something very therapeutic about being on the water in a kayak, you feel more in touch with your surroundings. This is what helps the veterans detach from the normal life and relax with us out there. The look on their faces by the end of the day is priceless, you can see that what you have just provided them in just a couple of hours has impacted them for the rest of their lives.
