“Hooks for Heroes is focused on giving back to American Veterans & First Responders. Founded by a US Marine Veteran, former NYPD Police Officer, and current FDNY firefighter, we have seen first hand, the distress and potential hardships that these occupations may bring upon an individual. We are avid fisherman and love being on the water. We use fishing as a release and want to share this with other Veterans & First Responders. Hooks For Heroes sends American Heroes fishing on their local fishing charter boats, to help cope with the physical and mental injuries they receive during their service. This offers our nation’s Veterans and First Responders a day off and a chance to catch “The Big One”. We provide the Heroes with snacks, soda & water on the boats, and when applicable we will also provide transportation to and from the boat dock.”
