"Chappy" refers to the founder, Chaplain Jeremiah Catlin who has served in the Army since 2005. He is a Combat Veteran of Iraq. In November 2007, he was medically evacuated due to a deadly cancer received during his 13th month in Iraq. This began a two and a half year process of spending a great deal of time with our nation's Wounded Veterans. During that time, he saw a need to get these heroes out of the hospitals and medical arena on retreats that would help them focus on something greater. He went back to his roots of hunting and fishing and sharing Christ with those to whom he ministers. This has now enabled him to work closely with Veterans from across the nation to assist in providing them with hunting and fishing opportunities, but more importantly, in helping to improve their lives with Christ.
Chappy currently serves as a Chaplain in the U.S. Army, freelance outdoor videographer*, professional hunter for two outdoor tv shows*, motivational speaker for outdoor events, outdoor writer*, and an outdoor film editor*.
