“The opportunity that mission outdoors afforded me to attend the Washington Tuna Classic has been immeasurable. The experience of the fast action of tuna fishing, the adrenaline rush, most importantly the comradeship developed with other veterans.

“Despite the hectic week for the organizers, they were always there to help accommodate me and others. Everyone was professional and there for the vets.

“That experience was so great it keeps me motivated and positive for next year! I still talk friends and family about how exciting it was. It’s definitely a trip I’ll never forget.”
