Accompanied by Shillman House Group Service Coordinator, Lauren, WWII veteran Larry joined Rifles to Rods on the group's first annual fishing trip!

Beautiful weather and ample fish made for a memorable afternoon as the veterans bonded over their military careers and love of fishing. 

We first encountered Rifles to Rods last February when we hosted the group's cofounders at Shillman's monthly Veteran's Lunch, and we look forward to future joint events with this wonderful group.
