7,500 is not a small start. I doubt any of the participants or volunteers in this program consider it a luxury or a small start. I would consider myself a success if I could have come up with this idea and then acted on it to the benefit of 7,500 veterans. Perhaps it is a small start, but small starts grow, small starts encourage other small starts and small starts are usually the basis of bigger solutions. Healing our veterans, no matter what the number, is not a luxury it our responsibility and if fly fishing is one of the activities that helps, so be it.
