Marines Helping Marines Fishing Tournament – May 16, 2015
The Marines Helping Marines Fishing Tournament is an annual event that benefits the Marines Helping Marines non-profit 501(c)3 organization that provides support for injured Marine Corps Personnel. The Marines Helping Marines, Wounded Marines program was established in the Spring of 2003 at the Bethesda Naval Hospital to provide extensive support for injured Marine Corps personnel and Navy FMF Corpsmen returning from the war on terror in the Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts. Since then the program has grown to include Balboa Naval Hospital , San Diego- Brooke Army Hospital, San Antonio- Walter Reed Hospital, Washington DC and the Wounded Warrior Regiment at both Camp Pendleton and Camp LeJeune. What began as an effort to provide emotional support to these wounded Marines and Corpsmen quickly expanded into a need to provide material support in the form of needed health and comfort items. The injured Marines arrive at the hospital with no more than the hospital gowns on their backs.
