Show CFC Campaign Video featuring NAAV’s Board of Directors member Alvin Shell, U.S. Army Veteran (Retired) and Chief Security for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington, DC. Visit: https://cfcnca.org/campaign-video
Alvin joined the U.S. Army in September of 2000 and was medically retired at the rank of Captain. He was commissioned through the Officer Candidate School after his enlisted service as a military policeman. As a platoon Leader, Alvin led his platoon to Iraq in 2004 and was later severely injured during battle. His last duty station was spent at Fort Bragg, NC as a Paratrooper. His is married and is the father of three sons.
Alvin’s physical and emotional recovery has not been perfect, but he has the perfect family support helping him through it. During his imperfect recovery he regains his peace of mind and serenity one cast at a time with a fly-fishing rod. Alvin is a multiple award-winning fly-fisherman that has fished from Alaska to the Florida Keys. He says that his ability to regain peace of mind was possible due to the support and encouragement given to him by his first casting instructor for disabled Veterans. He was the lead consultant for Ft. Belvoir’s project to make military housing better for wounded Service Members and their families (https: youtu.be/DHqnAHYpPg1). He was the keynote speaker for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (https: youtu.be/WOeoWpDwEFg) during multiple tournaments and was ultimately praised by the President for his actions in combat (https: youtu.be/vvat542h814) during a national speech.
