Vets Gather to Fish Fort Peck
May 17, 2017
Montana Warriors On The Water (MWOTW) will be hosting a fishing trip on Fort Peck Lake from July 10-15. Fifteen former and current service people from across the country will be guests of this trip and all expenses, including airfare, will be provided by MWOTW.
These guests will enjoy four days of fishing at Hell Creek, followed by a boat trip across the lake to Fort Peck, where more fishing will be enjoyed as well as other arranged activities. On Friday, July 14, there will be a Vietnam veterans pinning ceremony at Fort Peck with a Montana-elected official in attendance.
The trip will conclude with a benefit concert at the Fort Peck Marina on Saturday, July 15, featuring the Southern Drawl band. During the concert, there will also be a live auction and catering will be provided by the Cottonwood Inn.
There will be numerous items to bid on, including a painting by Cathryn Reitler of Glasgow, featuring a bull elk over the Missouri breaks. The work incorporates battle fatigues from northeast Montana's Michael Kulseth, originally from Medicine Lake, Mont. Kulseth has served since August 1993, earning many awards and medals. He is currently with the 4th ID Mission Command Element at Baumholder, Germany.
MWOTW started in Miles City and is a non-profit 501c3 organization, comprised of local sportsmen and women, as well as veterans of the United States Military. In partnership with local businesses, communities and organizations, MWOTW provides outdoor recreational therapy and opportunities to veterans of the United States military. MWOTW depends on the generosity of people and businesses across the country, but especially here in Montana to host and finance these activities.
