Freedom Alliance is sending a local veteran to Cabo San Lucas, a city on the tip of southern Mexico, for a deep sea fishing adventure.
Medically retired Cpl. Josh McCart of Smiths Station, Ala., was selected to participate in the trip. He and six others were chosen by Freedom Alliance, a nonprofit organization that supports injured service members and their families, to go on the the therapeutic outdoor trip on April 28-30.
The trip is co-sponsored by loanDepot.
A news release says the veterans will be aboard Bad Company, the world’s most successful professional deep sea fishing tournament-rigged yacht.
McCart, who served five years in the Army, lost his right hand during his second deployment to Iraq in 2007, after an improvised explosive device detonated.
The trip is part of Freedome Alliance’s outdoor adventures program, which provides injured troops and veterans with recreational therapy that improves the rehabilitation and aids in the transition back into civilian life.
The excursion will be filmed by a national lifestyle documentary broadcast team and is set to air on “Destination Baja Sur” a travel series on the World Fishing Network.
