Twenty-five Wounded Warriors from five different VA clinics from Palo Alto and Menlo Park made the trek to San Pablo Reservoir on March 2 to participate in a kayak fishing adventure put on by Heroes on the Water (HOW). HOW is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization helping wounded warriors relax, rehabilitate and reintegrate through kayak fishing and the outdoors.
The Wounded Warriors were met with friendly greetings and freshly-made breakfast burritos, which could have easily been the
highlight of the day courtesy of ex-Navy firefighter/Chef Jack Whiting. Soon it was to the business at hand, as wounded vets
were paired up with volunteers from NorCal Kayak Anglers (www.ncka.com) and it was off to the tough bite on San Pablo due to a recent hard rain. Some stayed on shore and there was an immediate hookup, which got everyone getting lines into the water.
