Rods For Soldiers is a 501c3 charity whose mission is to honor combat veterans. We build and donate custom fishing rods to combat veterans at no charge. We also sponsor fishing and hunting trips for veterans. In 2015 we added police officers and first responders to the list of people we honor. We also donate custom fishing rod to other military organizations and police and first responder organizations to raffle or auction to raise funds for their projects.
When we organize a trip whether it is fishing or hunting we provide everything the honoree needs with the exception of guns. We provide lodging, food, custom fishing rod, new reel, caps, t-shirts, and anything else that we can get donated. In addition we will do the fish cleaning and field dress and quarter all animals. No honoree ever pays for anything when they go on a trip with us.
Our mission is to give the honorees 3 days to relax and forget their problems for a short time. We also hope that they will continue to enjoy outdoor activities. Most of all we want them to know that we care about them and their wellbeing. Please join us in our mission by donating cash or gifts for these very deserving heroes.
