    Default A special note to VDFT

    This year I had 6 Veterans that didn't have a boater to be able to fish. I hooked each one up with someone to make sure they got out on the water. This fine young Marine was paired at the very last minute right before the tournament and the following is what I recieved from him recently. And now you know why I do what I do.

    "Good afternoon Mr Martin, I wanted to reach out and Express my gratitude for everything you and your family do to organize all of the great events you do.
    Veterans day fishing tournament was my first tournament ever and I was blessed to be paired with a great partner. The overall experience was unforgettable and I can promise you now that my wife is going to sprout grey hairs because of all the tackle I have invested in so I can be prepared for the next tournament I may be in.
    The first time I sent you a message was October 15. On October 21st my apartment caught on fire while my babysitter was watching over our kids.
    We stayed at one of my Marines house until we where able to relocate so the news you gave me about finding a boater on November 9 was extremely welcomed.
    Fishing is my passion, my family and I leave VA in January, we will be heading to NC to execute a new set of orders for the next 4 years. Until then, if there is anything I can do to help out with any upcoming events or if you know of any tournaments, charters, or youth group events please keep me in mind. My family and I may not have much money but I can offer my work ethic and time.
    Once again, thank you Sir."
