NBC 2 featured a story about how 6 women veterans enjoyed a day on the water through our Veterans Program
WINK TV ran a news story about the work Freedom Waters Foundation does helping veterans.
Picture a U.S. Veteran isolated in his home; suffering from PTSD; struggling to get out his front door; unsure of himself and others; knowing what he is capable of and afraid that he may lose control, so he stays home, alone, lonely, isolated, and sometimes teetering on a desire to live…or not. Now, imagine that same Veteran pushing himself out his front door; reaching out to others with trepidation; being invited to go fishing or just for a relaxing boat ride with local community members donating their time and vessels.
Freedom Waters Foundation presents this story, originally aired on the Austrailian television program "A Current Affair", of Nava George. Nava is the first quadriplegic person to sail alone.
Watch the ABC 10 news piece "Making a Difference" that featured Freedom Waters Foundation.
Freedom Waters Foundation was featured on ABC 7 WZVN on October 6, 2011.
