In 2009, former Marine Sergeant Joby Poster decided he wanted to give back to Marines by tapping into the therapeutic powers of fishing. Poster believed that by pairing wounded Marines with professional anglers in a fishing tournament, the Marines would not only be able to enjoy a temporary escape from the tedium of recovery, but they would also be able to learn a new sport that could potentially enrich their lives.

The tournament is held annually on Armed Forces day and has grown steadily over the past 7 years. Through the dedicated work of several sponsors, volunteers, and private donors, the Marines Helping Marines Fishing Tournament provides wounded Marines to enjoy the sort of weekend Sergeant Poster envisioned when he first had the idea 7 years ago.

This year's edition of the tournament will be held Saturday, May 16 at the Anchor Marina in the town of North East, Maryland. A welcome dinner for the Marines will be held the night before the tournament, with a banquet dinner provided by Hollywood Casino and after the day of fishing ends, the Nauti-Goose Saloon will be hosting a barbeque for the Marines. Prizes will be given throughout the day.

Marine Parents would like to thank Vapor Apparel for generously donaitng 250 tee-shirts to the event this year. We then pressed a design chosen by the event coordinators onto the shirts, and will ship them to Maryland to be handed out to participants in the fishing tournament.
