My name is Rob Witham; I am a retired US Army Combat Engineer. I wanted to say thank you for supporting the Military Families Foundation, because of your support I was able to fulfill a 40 year dream of fishing on the legendary Lake Okeechobee and share the memory with my son Aaron.

In all my military travels around the world and here in the U.S., I’ve never met such caring people towards Vets and their families as Danny & Carla Santangelo.  From the moment you arrive they roll out the red carpet and welcome you with open arms and feeling that you’re a member of their family.  After spending just a few moments with both Danny and Carla, I knew that they don’t make friendships to last the length of your adventure, rather ones that continue for a lifetime.

Attached are a few photos of the 26 bass we caught, mine was 6lbs and Aaron’s was almost 8lbs. it seemed that was the weight range for the majority of the bass we caught. Unfortunately, he lost the biggest one of the day at the boat as we went to net it, our guide (Randy Fulford) said it was between 12 & 15 lbs.

I can’t say Thank You enough, for supporting Veterans like me and our families reconnect after we have Proudly Served and Defended this great Nation we all call home!!  God Bless you and your Family.
