Our family wanted to tell you thank you for the wonderful family vacation. We had so much fun together, especially now that the boys are old enough to really enjoy all of the events and activities. You and your team are greatly appreciated for what you do for the military community. This was the first event of any such kind that we have ever done as a family and we were absolutely impressed! Your organization really pulled together to provide such numerous activities for us to do as a family. We had an awesome time in Myrtle Beach! Thank You again and God Bless You All!

A 2014 Family Weekend Attendee

“I was completely blown away by Takin’ Bacon 2014! You guys treated us like All Stars! The guides were great, the sponsors were over the top, and SOWW pulled out all the stops to make a great weekend. All of your hard work is greatly appreciated! I was completely consumed by the hunt and the fellowship, all the normal worries and concerns were long gone for that short time….. I believe in what you all are doing and if you need anything from me just let me know. Thanks!”


“I had a great time at Takin’ Bacon 2014. I was amazed and overwhelmed with the hospitality of all of the sponsors and volunteers. The experience was one that I will remember. I cannot express how much I enjoyed my time with SOWW at Takin’ Bacon. I am spreading the word as much as I can about how incredible the time was and the efforts of SOWW.”


“I just wanted to say Thanks for having me. The hunt was awesome and the time spent with like minded individuals was even better. It made me realize how much I really missed my time with the guys. Great stuff. Thanks for all you are doing for all of us!”

“SOWW, you put on the best event for wounded warriors I’ve seen yet! It was truly inspirational seeing great Americans putting together this hunt for us. All of the time, effort, and support from SOWW really makes me proud to be an American. The best hunt I’ve been on and it will always be etched in my memory. Thank you again SOWW!”


“Just wanted to send you a note about the great time I had “hunting hogs” and spending time with other guys who have been hurt and connecting with others who share a similar passion for hunting and the outdoors. Hunting is such a huge part of my life, that to me it was an instrumental part of my healing process when i got hurt in 2005. To go out with GREAT AMERICANS and share a day hunting forgetting about the long day of physical therapy or what happened down range was awesome. It helped me relax and get ready to go face my day tomorrow. Once again thank you for what you do and I hope your operation expands to help more wounded guys next year so they can make new friends, memories and share in the healing process of the outdoors at Lays Lake Hunting Club, thanks again and hope i see you in March 2012 for Makin Bacon II thanks again.

“The outpouring of support from the true patriots at SOWW was truly humbling. The time and effort these great Americans placed in planning and executing a first rate hunting event for us wounded guys was amazing to see. Thank you SOWW for puting together one of the best hunts I have ever been on.”


“Man I was excited to get a call from Brian to attend the Redfishing Trip 25-28 June. When I arrived at the Plantation everyone was so friendly. The support that went into the event was top notch. The SOWW personnel were willing to assist with anything any of the six wounded warriors needed. It was great to meet all the SOWW folks and other warriors. I can’t remember a time that I laughed so much and just was able to relax. I fished with what I would say was the best crew and boat there. I’m sure everyone else would say the same about their boats and crew. Doc and his mate Vern were great guides and showed us an unbelievable experience. Even though the weather moved in the last day of fishing everyone enjoyed themselves. SOWW thank you for a fantastic event! Hats off to Dave Floyd for overseeing this event and bringing some great guides to assist! I’m sure anyone attending future events will be able to relax, make lasting memories, and enjoy themselves!”


“I just want to let you all know that this trip is one that I will never forget. The hospitality that Dave and his family showed us is unmatched. This gentlemen and his family exemplify everything that is noble and humble. They provided relaxation, and an opportunity to link up with a Ranger buddy that was wounded in action while we were on a critical mission. Paul is one of my best friends. I’m glad I had the opportunity to share this experience with him as well as link up with Dave and his family.. Men and women of superior integrity and my new friends. RLTW!”


“Dave and his family showed us an amazing time in Cape Cod. Dave’s family and friends showed us that the American people still care about the troops and what we do. If there is anything I could do to help out SOWW for any of your events please feel free to let me know. I would love to help out another Ranger or veteran on one of these events. Fishing for shark and being able to slap it was something that I could finally cross off of my bucket list. Thank you for putting this event together and allowing Lio and I to finally link up. RLTW!”
