2013 Proceeds for WFW
New for 2013, Walleyes For Warriors is partnering with Operation Injured Soldier. Leftover proceeds from the 2013 Walleyes For Warriors event will go to OIS to help with one of their many worthwhile Veteran programs.
Operation Injured Soldier is a non profit organization, operated by volunteers that stand by our injured veterans. We believe that our injured vets have suffered very traumatic injuries while serving our country, some physical and some hidden deep inside. We offer our vets a chance to do the things that they thought was no longer possible after their injuries, such as hunting, fishing, and sporting events. With specialized hunting equipment, we can send amputees in the fields for hunts, with donated fishing boats and captains, we can also take them fishing.
When groups of injured vets attend these events, they find a common bond that allows them to talk to one another about their experiences, many have commented on how it has helped them move forward. When our injured vets go on these hunting and fishing events, it helps them realize that they still can do these things and that we all appreciate the sacrifices they have made for our country.

* * * * * * * * * Respect for the flag is an important issue for those who have served in one of the U.S. military branches. Official flag protocol specifies when and how civilian and military personnel are expected to salute the flag. The civilian salute is different than the military salute. A recent change to U.S. law now allows military veterans to continue rendering the military salute when not in uniform. It also authorizes military veterans not in military uniform to render a military-style hand salute at the playing of the national anthem as well as a military-style hand salute for veterans out of uniform during raising and lowering of the flag. Each of you will be seeing lots of flags and people saluting you. Please be advised that it is proper and encouraged for you to salute these flags as per above information. * * * * * * * * * *
