Freedom Waters Foundation (FWF) Veterans‚Äô Program is new (2012) and had its inaugural Meet and Greet event aboard the Naples Princess, on November 5, 2012.¬† Veterans who are readjusting to civilian life are volunteering with the FWF Veterans Program, after their first fishing outing with FWF changed/helped them, individually in a most positive way.
With the Veterans who came out fishing, FWF is developing the FWF Veterans program to enhance the lives of US Veterans through participation, productivity, mentoring and community integration. ¬†Many Veterans are isolating in their homes, not sure how to navigate in the world after coming back from combat. FWF has already made a huge impact in a few of their lives and healing. The goal is to continue to offer them something positive to lead and participate in.
The FWF Veterans Program will include boating outings and marine activities opportunities, as are prevalent in all other FWF programs.
