Fishing for the Mission 22 is a 501(C)(3) which offers a therapeutic approach to help heal veterans through fishing while raising awareness to the 22+ we continue to lose to suicide every day in the United States. Since the Global War on Terror began in 2001, there have been over 7,000 combat related deaths, and in the same period, there have been over 120,000 Veteran Suicides. This is not only a public health crisis, but unacceptable. Only one percent of our Nation joins the armed forces and it’s the duty of the remaining 99 percent to help our veterans in crisis. The impact of our fishing outings on veterans’ lives is immeasurable. By providing them with a therapeutic and enjoyable experience, we witness firsthand the positive effects it has on their mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Many veterans have shared stories of finding solace, camaraderie, and a renewed sense of purpose through our fishing events. We firmly believe that by supporting our cause, you are contributing to the healing journey of our nation’s heroes.
