Entitled, “Tight Lines for Troops”, this image was created by CDC Health Scientist, Goldie MacDonald, Ph.D., with the Office for Global Health. In this photo, more than 100 veterans, many disabled, return to harbor, after a day of fishing and physical activity on beautiful Lake Michigan. Each boat entering the harbor was staffed by captains and crew members donating their time and equipment to create Tight Lines for Troops. Proceeds from this event benefitted the Brain Injury Association of Michigan, Paralyzed Veterans of America, Manistee County Veterans Endowment Fund. The image earned Dr. MacDonald the Second Place award in the 2011 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “Domestic People and Programs”.
