Pelagic Warriors, Inc
Location – Hawaiian Islands
Pelagic Warriors is a recently organized, Kailua, Hawaii based charitable organization [501(c) 3 application pending. We give back to our Combat Veterans by teaching warriors the Art of Deep Sea Fishing.
John Sloatman, a 100% disabled Veteran U.S. Marine from Kailua, Hawaii, who fought in Vietnam War, was relaxing on the boat on the way in after a day of deep-sea fishing a few years ago, and the beautiful paradise and the open seas of Hawaii and majestic surroundings gave him an idea.
The open Hawaiian Waters are so powerfully magnificent,. The island scenery, both land, and water is so peaceful and majestic. It is considered one of the most healing places on earth. We started Pelagic Warriors, an organization that became an approved vendor for the Marine Corps Base Hawaii Wounded Warrior Battalion Hawaii Detachment. It has been in the works for several years. We and other members of the group – some of them also veterans – began working with military service members in Wounded Warrior Battalion Hawaii Detachment.
Wounded Warrior Battalion Hawaii Detachment provides rehabilitation, assistance, and support to U.S. Marine service members and veterans (and their families) who have sustained mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) and PTSD in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“Their work has been invaluable,” said Captain Ben Willkie U.S. NAVY, program director of Pelagic Warriors. “It has gone beyond anything we expected. It’s had an extraordinary impact on the lives of military service members and veterans. They befriend them, gain their trust, and allow them to experience things they’ve never experienced. They get them back into the community and provide an avenue for them to attain peace and tranquility.”
In 2014, Pelagic Warriors volunteers spent hours teaching participants to navigate a boat, boat safety, setup up of rods, reels, setting lines, and lures. We took them on nine fishing trips, as well. and caught plenty of fish for a feast.
