VFW Wounded Warriors

On Monday, May 12th, 2014 we were visited by the Wounded Warriors from the Long Beach Veterans Hospital. The Warriors belong to a special group called, “Project Healing Waters, Fly Fishing, Inc.,” which is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.

The Warriors were welcomed with a dinner at the VFW building in Bishop, CA catered by Olga Rojas and her famous pork burritos.  Dessert was a patriotic flag cake, shown below, by Christian Ray.

The Warriors spent the next three days fly fishing and recreating in the Eastern Sierra before returning home.  A big “THANK YOU” to Project Healing Waters, Olga Rojas, Christian Ray and everyone else who helped out!
