The Beginning

Wounded War Heroes all started when Michael Savoie, A Medically Retired Wounded War Hero USMC, met Emeric Watson (Founder of WWH’s) at a hunting event in Pachuta, MS. Late one night around a campfire Michael heard stories about some of the Watson’s fishing adventures and asked Emeric what it would cost to take around 20 military men and women down to south Louisiana for a weekend of fishing. Emeric’s wheels immediately started to spin and can recall having trouble sleeping that night because of all the ideas running through his head. Emeric spoke with his father and brother-in-law the following day and decided they would ask some family and friends to make donations to help defray the cost of a trip. Much to their surprise they received an overwhelming response and received commitments for donations and services.

Within a couple of days, they set a date for the first WWH’s Fishing Rodeo, which was dictated by the weekends that remained available at the Delta Marina, whereby default left them with the task of pulling off the event within 17 days. The inaugural WWH’s rodeo went off without a hitch due to hard work and dedication from many friends and family members. To date, WWH’s has grown from one large fishing rodeo annually to 16 different hunting and fishing events sponsored mostly by oilfield related service companies. A passion for the outdoors and the desire to give something back to these courageous men and women who have sacrificed so much for our country and sustained life-altering wounds in the fight for freedom is the premise behind Wounded War Heroes. Our military men and women put their lives on the line so we can wake up every morning and go about our day, enjoying freedom in ways big and small.

WASHINGTON (AFNS) — Members of the U.S. Air Force Band surprised commuters at Union Station with a World War II holiday flashback in December.

The event was designed to be a special holiday musical presentation celebrating the service and sacrifices of the nation’s WWII veterans.

“This is the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. We’re trying to honor our veterans from the greatest generation,” said Col. Larry Lang, the band’s commander, and conductor. “We’ve jumped back into that really cool swing music and designed some music just for them.” [See Video] At:
