Casting it Forward
A River Heals Unseen Wounds
Frank Moore is a WWII veteran who after his deployment in Normandy in 1944 became a conservationist and land steward. He healed his unseen wounds from the war through the river, his fly rod and steelhead. By experiencing firsthand the healing power of nature, and the rebirth of his soul, he had a new mission to protect the magnificent gem, the North Umpqua River from heavy logging in the 60s and 70s. And he did…
What a stroke of serendipity brought Rusty, co-founder of Source One Serenity, and Frank together in Luxembourg in 2013! Frank became a leading example and a mentor for Rusty to continue serving his country.
How many veterans Rusty already took to the mountains and streams on the upper North Umpqua to let them heal their wounds, express gratitude and experience oneness with nature.
