Shillman House Veteran Joins "Rifles to Rods" on Fishing Trip

Posted: May 20, 2017

Founded last year by two veterans with the mission to help fellow veterans transition to civilian life after service, the non-profit Rifles to Rods organizes fishing trips for veterans, touting the therapeutic benefits of the sport.     

Accompanied by Shillman House Group Service Coordinator, Lauren, WWII veteran Larry joined Rifles to Rods on the group's first annual fishing trip!

Beautiful weather and ample fish made for a memorable afternoon, as the veterans bonded over their military careers and love of fishing. 

We first encountered Rifles to Rods last February when we hosted the group's co-founders at Shillman's monthly Veteran's Lunch, and we look forward to future joint events with this wonderful group.
