ISLAMORADA, FLORIDA KEYS — The stars and stripes will be flying high at the Cheeca Lodge All American Backcountry Tournament, set for Veteran’s Day Weekend, November 9-11, 2012. In honor of our nation’s soldiers, the resort will partner with the Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation to bring two wounded servicemen to compete in the tournament as a team.
Based in Bozeman, Montana, the non-profit Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation’s mission is to provide traumatically injured servicemen and women from Iraq and Afghanistan with a high quality restorative program, utilizing loving service and the sport of fly fishing in serene surroundings as a healing therapy. Over the past six years, W&QW Foundation has been bringing wounded warriors to Montana for a six-day, all expenses paid program of guided fly fishing. “Angling brings hope and serenity to the mind; it is wholesome therapy without a therapist or unwanted side-effects from chemical forms of coping,” said W&QW President, Col Eric Hastings, USMC (Ret). “Fly fishing helps these wounded warriors learn to deal with the impact of life-altering injuries while staying fully engaged in a productive life. It builds resilience.”
