Heroes On The Water Tampa Bay Photograph by Bill Howard

The Tampa Bay Chapter of Heroes on the Water held its first event this past Saturday at beautiful Fort Desoto Park, St Petersburg Florida. Our honored guest for the day was Don Floyd and his wife Donna. Don retired from the US Army in 1999. He saw one of our flyers at the VA and decided to give us a call. I’m sure glad he did. While this fishing was not all that great, I do believe our guests had a great time out on the water.

For your safety we recommend that you always wear a Coast Guard approved life vest while on the water.

While the fishing wasn’t stellar, the scenery was.

HOW Comorant

As it was our first event, it was only fitting that Donna caught her first saltwater trout.

After a rough start to our chapter, I do believe we are off on the right foot. Look for more and bigger events in 2012.
