Rifles to Rods founders Dmitri Karpouzis, Ryan Puzzo and Gerard McAllister spoke to the Club about their efforts to create a program that helps veterans with their transition back to civilian life. Through their own experience, they realized that fishing reduced the stresses of the transition. They formed Rifles to Rods as a 501(C)(3) Charitable organization about 1 year ago and began to expand the fishing program to help other veterans. In their first year they sponsored 10 high quality trips serving 50 veterans from Western MA to Cape Cod. They plan to expand the program to help more veterans with the help of business sponsors and other donors.
