This is so great.

First, can we all agree that as a nation we do not do enough for veterans who have served our country. We all hear so many stories of veterans returning home and having trouble re-adapting and just getting on with life.

So that’s why I say this is so great.

There is a non-profit organization in Turner that is run by a veteran, who is also a registered Maine guide. Meet Dan Waite. Dan says because he found his way out of the darkness, and made it through the battle fields in the Middle East, he’s found a new mission here at home. A new battle you might say.

Like a lot of us, Dan loves being outdoors in Maine. He says “My favorite therapy is found in the wilderness and on the water” And Dan and his Operation Reboot Outdoors Veteran Organization offers hunting and fishing trips to Veterans at no cost.

If you are as moved as I was in reading about this venture, please know that you can help out financially with a donation.

Operation Reboot Outdoors is committed to bridging the gap between military life and the transition back to civilian life. If you’re a veteran who would like to hang out with Dan and his Registered Maine Guides for any offered activity, reach out here. 

If I may, let's say thanks to Dan and his family and associates. Thank you for your service, and thank you for what you are doing for our country everyday now too. And to any Vet who reads this, I thank you for your service and hope you reach out to Operation Reboot Outdoors.
