In 2010, as Wounded Warrior Anglers we developed our Sporting Programs for Veterans, aimed at providing our Disabled Veterans with a recreational fishing opportunities.
Even though our first Sporting Programs for Veterans originally started as a program strictly for fishing and to help Disabled Veterans struggling with physical injuries, PTSD and other emotional distress a unique alternative mental health program.
In 2017, the organization found the need to change its name legally, choosing American Military Veterans Foundation, Inc. along with that comes enhanced programs within our Sporting Programs for Veterans to assist all Veterans, Disabled Veterans with the mission to share the healing power of outdoor activities by providing fishing trips, hunting trips, golf outings, motorcycle rides, and shooting sports in the structured Sporting Programs for Veterans run by our volunteers. Our program outreach includes local Vet Centers, Veterans Affairs Healthcare Facilities, and Community-based Medical Centers.
Sporting Programs for Veterans is continual, and provided by our volunteers are individualized and designed to help Veterans, Disabled Veterans develop a since of comradery and have fun.
Members who regularly attend Sporting Programs for Veterans outings build confidence to further pursue creative self-expression and engagement within their communities.
In the future we hope some Sporting Programs for Veterans participants go on to volunteer to help other Veterans, Disabled Veterans.
All Sporting Programs for Veterans outings are provided to the Veterans, Disabled Veterans free of charge. Demand for the Sporting Programs for Veterans continues to rise and though virtually all resources raised for this program go directly into outings, supplies, travel, and refreshments, we sadly cannot help every qualified applicant because funding is limited.

By making a donation you can help defray the cost for Veterans, Disabled Veterans attending our Sporting Programs for Veterans and enable us to continue sharing the healing power of alternative based therapy with deserving heroes locally.
