In 2012, then-Commodore Jim Diven of North Point Yacht Club had a vision. As a veteran, he wanted to give back to those veterans and wounded warriors and their families who had given so much for their country. That vision became the Wounded Warriors Day on the Bay.
As he explored the possibilities of what he and North Point Yacht Club could offer, he contacted liaison officers from Fort Meade, Aberdeen Proving Ground, and Fort Belvoir for assistance in identifying those in need. Jim envisioned a stress-free day on the bay at the Club’s beautiful site on Jones Creek. He considered ways to treat the veterans and their families to a cruise too. It wasn’t long before he had names of several dozen wounded veterans interested in this unique event.
The first Wounded Warriors Day on the Bay was born.
