We’re not an adventure program where participants leave just as empty as they arrived. We exist to initiate life-change. All participants are combat veterans set in an environment that inspires deep trust and openness. It is not uncommon for a man to pause and say, “… I’ve never told anyone this before …” then reveal a painful experience that’s been grinding on his soul for too long. When a Wild Ops operation ends, it is actually just the beginning. For those willing to fight for personal healing, it is the beginning of a life-long fellowship at the deepest levels. It’s entrance into the nationwide network of Wild Ops alumni who have each other’s backs 24/7. Wild Ops is for life. We’re veteran led, from board members to operations planning and execution. We know how to break through denial and self-imposed isolation to reach struggling vets. We are vets serving vets, partnering with highly skilled and dedicated civilians. We leave no one behind.
Time on the Water was created with one goal in mind: to thank our Military, first responders, and health care professionals for their sacrifice by providing an all-expenses-paid five-day fishing trip to Lake of the Woods near Sioux Narrows, Ontario. If you know someone that has served their country that would love a fishing trip, or if you would like to sponsor a veteran, please contact us right away.
We work hard year-round to raise money to cover the costs of these trips so that we can offer this great experience at absolutely no cost. There are no hardship requirements that our brave men and women must meet in order to participate in one of our excellent fishing trips. We try to serve as many people as we can. You can share your story or just talk fishing, either way, you are welcome.

Wounded Warrior Outdoors, Inc. is a non-profit organization exclusively founded to provide wounded servicemen and women with therapeutic outdoor adventures across North America. WWO gives deserving Active Duty Warriors in transition the opportunity of a lifetime in the wilderness location of their choice. We call them “Adventures Enabled.” Their adventure could take them bear hunting in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada, on alligator hunts or fishing excursions in the Gulf Coast region of Florida or deer hunting in Texas. During their experience, they will participate in therapeutic activities such as backpacking, trail expeditions and numerous social interactions.
Wounded Warrior Outdoors provides this all-inclusive adventure at absolutely no cost to the servicemen and women, their families or the government. Transportation, lodging, meals and documentation of the adventure is provided free of charge. It is because of this arrangement that Wounded Warrior Outdoors relies entirely on private donations. Administration, general offices and personnel services are donated.
In order to maintain this highly effective organization, we need the support of private individuals and corporations. At Wounded Warrior Outdoors, over ninety percent of all donations directly benefit these Active Duty Warriors in transition.
Fifty wounded, but active, members of the military are selected to participate each year. Our host facilities are of the highest quality and offer all the comforts of home. WWO also provides complete outfitting including gear, clothing and field transport. Even taxidermy services are provided at no charge.
Most important to the program, Active Duty Warriors in transition are provided with all the accessibility and equipment necessary to make it an adventure that is truly memorable and one in which they can participate fully. No matter the individual’s disability, our focus in on ability and making sure their adventure becomes the memory of a lifetime.
All military branches have participated in our program and we have many relationships with military hospitals that help us facilitate our programs.
