Operation Vets with Nets

  1. Operation Vets with Nets HomeFront Sitrep 2:06:55

Operation Vets with Nets, a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization, is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military and retired service personnel and disabled veterans through Cat and Striper fishing.

Our goal is to open the outdoors to active duty and retired service members, as well as veterans with various disabilities, including those bound to a wheelchair, to the world of fishing. We provide a means of healing through an all-expense-paid freshwater fishing adventure. Our fishing trips will focus on catching Catfish as well as Striper. These trips will be conducted by the founder and/or a Board-approved local fishing guide volunteer.

Our Vision

Being there for those in need. Giving Back to those that gave, all through the power of fishing

David Willis HomeFront Sitrep Podcast

My name is David Willis, I knew at a very early age that I was going into the military but didn’t know what branch. As I got older and started learning about each branch and quickly figured out that the Marines was the best. I served in the Marine Corps from 97-04. My MOS was 0311(infantry). I went to Paris Island for boot camp after boot camp I was stationed with 2nd blt 8th Marines Golf company. While with 2/8 I went on several deployments to port a prince Haiti, Okinawa, South Korea, Greece, also did two trips to Bridgeport California for cold weather training, I wasn’t going to make a Mediterranean float so I extended and joined 1st blt 8th Marines Bravo company. During my time there we deployed to the Mediterranean and had stops in Spain, Italy, Malta, Africa, and other ports. I got out of the Marines in August of 01, but 9/11 happened and was recalled to go back in where I was stationed with a mobilization support battalion and deployed.
