Still Duty Bound

maryland40On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, fighting ceased between the allies and Germany. Because of this significant day in history, we celebrate Veterans Day.

The purpose of Veterans Day is to honor all of America’s veterans who have served our country. A day to show these warriors that they are not forgotten, and a day to show them that their countrymen and women are eternally grateful for their bravery, service and sacrifice.

At Heroes on the Water, we treat every day as if it is Veterans Day. It is our duty to serve the warriors who have defended our country, and to give them the peace and serenity they deserve in their lives. If there’s one thing we know about our warriors is that once they answer their call to service they will continue to serve, in some way or another, for the rest of their lives. In turn, it is our duty to do the same for them.

Elect to Give Peace

howpeaceBy definition, to elect, means to carefully select. In fact, we make choices every single day, some more important than others. Every warrior made the choice to defend and protect our country, and because of this choice many of them now face their own battles once they return home. We have the opportunity, and the means, to give back to them, to offer them peace in their lives. If you were given the choice to elect to give peace to our heroes, would you?

Every member of our HOW Nation has voted in favor of this initiative through some form of participation. There are different ways to cast your vote, and all are necessary and critical to bring peace to our warriors.

Never Let Them Fall

WarriorWith the fall season comes the holiday season. For many, this time of year comes with added stress and challenges. It’s important to keep in mind that many of our nations heroes are already fighting their own battles before the stress and pressure of the holidays even arrive, making it an essential time of year to band together as a HOW Nation.

The holidays can be a lonely period, and this is a feeling no warrior should ever have to feel. After the sacrifices they have made for our country, there should always be someone by their side, reminding them they are never alone. We, HOW Nation, are that someone. We are not only comrades, we are a family unit; it is our responsibility to take care of one another.

Heroes on the Water was recently subject to a study that could change the way you look at HOW and what we do. Don’t worry, this change of perspective is actually a good thing! You may be wondering why looking at Heroes on the Water differently could be beneficial. Well, we’ll tell you HOW!

N A T U R EFishing for Knowledge

Troy University conducted an 18-month study focused on alternative forms of therapy for individuals who were faced with traumatic experiences. Heroes on the Water and some of the unexplained results of our simple concept were the primary inspiration behind this study. The nature of the study not only displays the therapeutic benefits of what HOW does, but the study provides empirical data that shows just how valuable our programs are. The presentation of Troy University’s findings attracted a much larger crowd than expected, proving that there’s something here.

“Especially my kids noticed the positive residual effects of kayak fishing.”

Randy Hay is an active duty sergeant based at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. And like many warriors, he strives to live a positive life in spite of bouts of anxiety and a diagnosis of PTSD. Looking for a way to gain some peace and perspective, Randy was intrigued by the posting he saw on the Northwest Kayak Anglers website, so he sent an email to Heroes on the Water asking about an upcoming event. He received an immediate response and signed up to go.Randy - My Encouraged Me

That was in April of 2014. It only took one event for Randy to be “hooked.”

“I was surprised at how accommodating everyone was. They were very organized, and very kind, welcoming everyone as they came in. “
