Fisherman Builds Rail System For Our Warriors

July 9th, 2014 by

To power his dream of bringing disabled veterans to the water, Jeff Thompson turned to Interstate Batteries.

To power his dream of bringing disabled veterans to the water, Jeff Thompson turned to Interstate Batteries.

Injured and disabled veterans deserve a lot of things, including a chance to enjoy the great outdoors.

That’s what drove retired Marine Corps Pilot Jeff Thompson to design a handicap hand rail system that allowed this avid fisherman to get back on the water.

Working with Ranger® Boats, Jeff designed a unique rail system dubbed the Fish’n Rail™ that allows him to fish while wearing a solid, 360-degree back brace.

The draw to the great outdoors also inspired Jeff’s dream of bringing more disabled veterans out fishing.

Thus began Operation Troop Salute, a program that takes disabled veterans on the water to fish during championship angler events. Last year, Jeff coordinated with the Wounded Warrior® Project to take six wounded warriors fishing for the Forrest Wood Cup Championship Bass Tournament in Georgia, and the plan is to take out more in 2014.

Operation Troop Salute gives injured veterans the opportunity to get outside and go fishing.

With about $10,000 of electronic equipment onboard, Jeff knew he was going to need some reliable power. For his trolling motor and equipment, Jeff went to the best choice, the 31-AGM7 from Interstate Batteries.

“It’s security, safety and reliability to me,” he said. “It means knowing that I have the power. I don’t have to worry. That’s peace of mind.”
