The inspiration for the film Veteran Nation was a group of volunteers in Bozeman, Montana, who comprise Warriors and Quiet Waters. WQW uses the therapeutic power of fly fishing to help heal the wounds of war.
WQW brings wounded warriors to Montana for a six-day program of fly fishing and recreation. Most warriors who come are still in rehab in the military hospital system. Once here, they have the opportunity to relax and to learn to fly fish in the quiet and beautiful surroundings of Montana and neighboring Yellowstone Park. You can learn more about this program by watching this short, moving documentary below.
