September 17, 2012 By: Gus Delaporte

The Cheeca Lodge’s All American Backcountry Tournament, to be held Veteran’s Day weekend, will include a team of wounded servicemen, in partnership with the Warriors & Quiet Waters Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to provide wounded servicemen and women with a restorative program, utilizing fly fishing as healing therapy.

“Fly fishing helps these wounded warriors learn to deal with the impact of life-altering injuries while staying fully engaged in a productive life. It builds resilience,” said Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation President, Col. Eric Hastings, USMC (Ret).
