It isn’t every day that most Americans get to cruise offshore, fish the Gulf Stream, and bring home their catch to throw on the grill, but having the freedom to do so is truly priceless. John and Susan Stevenson, owners of Accordingly IV (Viking 76 out of Morehead City, NC), were honored to share this American dream with a few families of our armed forces through their Bluewater Yacht Sales Sales Professional & boat captain, Peter Du Bose, and a ministry called Operation Resolute.
Operation Resolute comes alongside chaplains and active military personnel to sustain military families and strengthen our active duty warriors. Based in North Carolina, the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization relies on donations and support to improve family relations and provide opportunities for servicemen and their chaplains to come together in safe outdoor environments, helping them decompress from the stresses of military life. These events also allow parents the chance to bond with their children as they spend time in the woods or on the water. For many, this was their first experience offshore fishing.
