Group for veterans

We are very proud to be working with West Virginia Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing in trying to help organize a group on the Big Coal River. Project Healing Waters is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.

We need to know if there is an interest on the Big Coal River for this group. Any veteran with at least 1 percent disability is eligible to participate. We have a couple of folks who have volunteered to be team leaders, we just need to know if there are any eligible vets around the Big Coal area who would like to be a part of the group.

For additional information, please contact Shelia Combs at 304-837-3962. We are very proud of our veterans.

Also, volunteers that can take pictures of the shelter dogs, do transports to take dogs to the vet or to the rescue groups (local and some out of state). Gas money is provided. Please help us save them! We are a 501c3 organization. Contact Eva at
