Volunteers who are Dedicated to working with Veterans

We are on a mission to do for those that so willingly have done for us.

Our Great Volunteers

We are extremely thankful for all of the many volunteers who help support this great cause and without or Veterans, we wouldn’t have an event to volunteer for. Thank you all!


Captain Cass Coroiescu

Cass Coroiescu is the founder and fleet captain of the Veterans Summer Slam and has a deep passion for the sport of fishing and the outdoors. Still, no passion is stronger than his love for his country and the freedom that he and all Americans share thanks to the sacrifice of the brave men and women of the United States military. Cass’s mission is to give back to those Veterans who may not have the opportunity or means to enjoy the things he is so passionate about. We are on a mission to do for those that so willingly have done for us.
