Chuck Wrenn

Chuck Wrenn is a champion angler and frequent volunteer for both the Central VA and Tidewater Chapters of Heroes On the Water. A man truly passionate about the organization, Chuck has been known to use personal vacation days as a means with which to attend the HOW events. A veteran of Desert Storm/Desert Shield, Chuck has within him a deep and personal connection to the importance of the organization. In his own words, ‘On the water, the events here in Virgina work with the local Veteran’s Administration office, as well as the Wounded Warrior programs. It is at these events where volunteers like myself are paired with a hero for a few hours on the water. Each time I have been on the water, the hero I am paired with constantly thanks me for giving him or her the opportunity. I simply smile and reply, “No…thank you. If it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be here to share in this experience with you.”‘ When not lending his heart and hands to HOW, Chuck can be found spending some on-water time with his son, an eager representative of the next generation of kayak anglers, and a proud owner of dad’s tournament-won kayak.
