Heros On The Water

H.O.W (Heroes On the Water) was formed in 2007 and has served about 130 veterans, and is an arm of the Kayak Anglers Society of America. The program went national in June 2009, with events in Georgia, Virginia and Washington State.  H.O.W was developed to help physically and mentally wounded soldiers escape the stress of their combat experience and give them a chance to get away from the rigors of rehabilitation.


These wounded warriors say it really helps them relax and forget about their injuries.  I’m sure all YakAnglers can agree; just getting out on the water is a big stress reliever in all of our lives.

 


All equipment is provided by H.O'W, and there is no experience necessary.  Basic kayaking and angling instruction is apart of the program. H.O.W is a non-profit organization and is totally dependent on donations.
