December Troutline- Speaker: George Gaines on Project Healing Waters

Fellow Members,
Attached is the December Troutline. Our speaker this month is George Gaines, who in coordination with Capt. Ed Nicholson launched Project Healing Waters.

With an increased number of wounded vets from recent wars, and those who served in the Vietnam era needing help to recover from PTSD, it's incumbent on us to consider what we can do. Many of the Vietnam vets we see now are those who suppressed their memories. They are retiring and those memories are surfacing in painful ways.

George Gaines has remained on the leading edge of efforts to grow Project Healing Waters. On Thursday night, please bring any gear you'd like to contribute to the DC chapter he is starting, your checkbook, and an open mind about how you can contribute. Often what they need most is just the chance to make a new friend who will listen.
