Naked Warrior Project Hosts Charity Fishing TournamentMay 18, 2022 by Triton Staff
A fishing tournament is a great way to spend a day at sea. Pair that with a good cause and you have the Fourth Annual Naked Warrior Project Fishing Tournament on May 21 in Pompano Beach, Florida.
Hosted by Naked Warrior Project and supported by Blue Tide Marine, the charity’s mission is to memorialize U.S. Special Operations troops, known as U.S. Navy SEALs — both those lost and those injured and in recovery — as well as education, memorials, and military family support projects.
With a kick-off party and captain's meeting on May 19 and the tournament on May 21, members of the public are invited to join U.S. Navy SEALs and other military veterans.
The 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization was started by John Owens, a Navy SEAL, when his brother, Ryan Owens, also a Navy SEAL, was killed in action on Jan. 29, 2017. The group’s current primary mission is to build a memorial to Ryan Owens in South Florida.
