Tuna Fishing Trip
In July, the newly formed Nevada Outdoor Adventure Foundation (NVOAF) facilitated a tuna fishing trip
from San Diego for recipient Nick Williams. This was the inaugural adventure which was largely funded
by a generous donation from Valley Electric in Pahrump, NV.
The NVOAF is the Nevada chapter of the national organization, Outdoor Adventure Foundation. NVOAF
provides hunting and fishing adventures for combat-disabled veterans under the age of 40 that ware
wheelchair bound caused by injury during active service or have lost a limb during active service. In
addition, NVOAF provides adventures for young adults and children under the age of 25 with cancer or
other life-threatening illness. The NVOAF was conceived and established by Lt. General E. R. “Buck”
Bedard, USMC (ret.) who recruited family and friends to join him in the worthwhile endeavor. General
Bedard says, “I grew up hunting and fishing and learned a great deal about self-reliance and overcoming
challenges that nature presented. I wanted to pass this on and encourage those that are facing real,
daily challenges in their lives. Nature provides us with strength and reasons to persevere.”
