In 2018, Brian McCutcheon, a resident on Cape Cod, MA, started taking veterans fishing to thank them for their service and sacrifice. He is not a veteran himself; He is just profoundly grateful for them. Every veteran he takes fishing gets to keep their fishing pole which he has refurbished just for them.
He is currently raising $5,000 for the following:
- Pay for supplies to refurbish fishing rods and reels for veterans
- Compensate captains for fuel usage who donate their time
- Refurbishing a 15 foot alluminum boat to have on hand
- Pay the the annual fee for the new website www.wet-vet.com
- Creating a marketing plan
- Fees to become a non profit
