Vets Fishing with Vets Tournament supports Veterans Band

By Richard Gonzales

The Spirit of Aransas Pass, a 501c3 non-profit organization, is spreading their spirit all the way to Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. Founders Mike and Jan Moore and Mike and Laura Welborn all of Aransas Pass started the Vets Fishing with Vets event to help veterans and to help change Aransas Pass. “Last year we dedicated all of the fishing tournament proceeds to the Fisher House, a national chain of units that assist wounded veterans,” said Mike Moore, who manages the Redfish Bay Boat House. “This year we had a special case with the Veterans Band of Corpus Christi being asked to perform at the deactivation ceremony of the submarine USS Corpus Christi on May 30 in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. So we are contributing $1,000 this fishing tournament to help get them there.”
