All across this great land of ours, TU members involved in the Veterans Service Program have witnessed the healing that a clear-water stream can provide. They have seen those affected with PTSD experience the thrill of landing a trout on a fly that they tied themselves, and have seen them smile in ways that their families may have long forgotten. By the simple act of casting a well placed fly they have seen amputees discover that, yes, they can do things that they may have thought were lost forever.
Read our VSP Program Guide  to learn more about the program.
This program doesn’t just benefit our veterans — any of our member volunteers will tell you that they themselves experience something special. Sharing their love of the sport and developing lasting relationships with those that may be struggling to reconnect to a more normal and peaceful life is one small but magical way we can repay those that have given so much.
If this experience appeals to you, take a look at our VSP Program Guide  which will give you a good idea of what we’re all about. You’ll find a good description of our veterans program and how to take the first steps of engaging with your local veteran’s community. Please consider joining us for the healing and the fun!
