What is the Take a Soldier Fishing program?

TASF is a program that falls under CWCN (Combat Warrior Crisis Network) and allows a place where Citizens (Veterans) and service members can be brought together, and make a connection and go fishing. 

We find people that are willing to put together events and coach them on how to do so. We help them by providing support and encouragement and offer a link to the service members through the site.

These programs involve the military bases, veterans and local communities around the bases. Fishing trips are set up for a small number of service members and they enjoy a great day of fishing with people that know the local area. The local communities that become involved, generally support these events by providing rooms, food, and boats for military personnel.

We started TASF, originally as a way to get the solders out of their rooms and away from the base. We wanted to show them that the rest of the world does not see our soldiers the same as the news media might portray.

We strive to show that there are people out there that care, and want to help. By providing these events, we have found they give the soldiers something to look forward to. We have also found that soldiers have also changed their outlook on life - the way they feel about wearing their uniform and a new sense of hope.
