These are the men and women who actively protect us every day.
They are away from home for weeks, months, and even years at a time. They put their lives on hold, missing friends and family birthdays, weddings, and so much more. They do all of this with the sole intention of keeping our country safe and free. Unfortunately, when they come home, they often suffer from depression, anxiety. In very worst-case scenarios, they experience PTSD from the tragedies they witnessed and the life-threatening experiences they faced.
Upon their return, they must have a robust support system, whether it’s only for a short time between assignments or a more extended leave period. This support system should help them reconnect with civilian life, allow them to rest and recuperate from their experiences, and encourage mental health assistance if necessary.
When you support Hometown Hero Outdoors, you also help these men and women that could benefit from a safe and relaxing outdoor adventure. In addition, through these planned activities, we can give them the opportunity to connect with others who have similar experiences and struggles.
We encourage you to make a donation today or consider volunteering your time to assist us in getting our Service Members into the outdoors. (Contact Us for additional information) so that we can continue to make a difference in the lives of Service Members throughout our nation.
