Good evening all, Capt. K. here, wishing the entire VAC family a happy and healthy New Year! We had a bit of a wild ride in 2021, but we were still able to conduct 50 trips, and offer our service to upwards of 300 veterans. In addition to the trips conducted by our regular fleet captains, we also booked the Seven B's out of Narragansett, RI in late August for a large group trip (30 veterans, plus support staff). We also got an additional assist on our Eversource Veterans Event on Nov. 4th from Capt. Scott Lundberg of Reel to Reel Sportsfishing in RI. Thank you Seven B's and Capt. Scott! I also had the great honor of conducting a 'last wish' trip here in CT; it is hard to describe what those trips feel like, but with the help of Capt. Tom and Navy Corpsman Josh Chiarini we were able to grant this last request. It's difficult to know what the future will bring, but we will continue to do our best to offer as many trips as possible in as many places as possible in 2022. We are currently planning on attending the New England Saltwater Fishing Show in Providence this coming March; more details to follow on that. My thanks as always to all our captains: Capt. Shawn Tibbetts, Capt. Mark Petitt; Capt. Randell Bagwell, Capt. Chris Gergely, and Capt. Mike Pirri. My sincere thanks to two others this evening - to Director Mike T. Kelly, who is stepping down from our Board of Directors, thank you for all your help! We will miss you Mike! and to Capt. Tom Bremer, who has shouldered so much of the logistical burden of our program these past few years. It takes a village to keep us going, and we have a great one. On behalf of the VAC team, thank you everyone, and let's have a great 2022! ... See MoreSee Less
