    I am an uninjured Vietnam veteran who has been kayaking and canoeing for 50years. I tried corresponding with the Team River Runner group in Brockton Ma. and got no response. My current passion is sea kayaking in coastal ocean waters and know that handicapped vets can benefit from this activity. I’d like to help.
