Mike lovino, CAMS Sr. NERC CIP Specialist at New Haven, Middletown, GenConn & Oswego, exemplifies his unwavering commitment to giving back to those who have sacrificed for our nation. Annually, he volunteers as a boat captain for a distinguished event organized by the Maj. Steven Roy Andrews Fishing Outreach Program and the Gaylord Hospital Sports Association. This biannual fishing tournament brings together 25 veterans and 25 boat captains to honor and support the veterans who have valiantly served our country.

During the recent tournament, Mike partnered with Mike Kelsey, a Marine veteran who served two tours in Iraq. Their exceptional teamwork and dedication led them to victory, with a total of 5 fish weighing 20.07 pounds. All fish caught during the tournament are released back into the waters to their natural habitat. In addition to his invaluable participation as a boat captain, Mike generously donated a guided fishing trip to be awarded to one of the veterans during the awards ceremony.
