Wounded Warrior Angler's Hope Veterans Take Bait and Fish

Good idea but bad information
"We want to knock that 23 veterans dying of suicide daily down by helping to get things in a more positive direction for them," Souters said, whose husband, David, helped found the organization.
When will folks ever get the number right?

An idea that started as a dream years ago and not long ago became a reality now has a home to call its very own, thanks to the benevolence of others.

The Wounded Warrior Anglers cut the ribbon and held an open house on its new brick-and-mortar location at 1490 Pine Island Road, Unit 5, on Tuesday.

The event featured a color guard, many of the Wounded Warrior Anglers, friends, dignitaries and donors who surprised the group with more funding.

Judy Souders, vice president and co-founder of the group, said the WWA did its work at her house for the first 5-plus years of its existence.

"It's something we had a dream about since we formed it, it's always been there. It's taken us a while to get the funds to get this location," Souders said. "Now that it's come to fruition, we're excited we can help veterans and families."

The Wounded Warrior Anglers is a group that caters to veterans through alternative therapies by getting them on the water fishing and teaching them to build their own rods to give them self-worth.
