Outdoor   Adventures

Americans who enjoy outdoor activities are experiencing the benefits of “outdoor therapy”. American Heroes In Action provides therapeutic outdoor adventures to American heroes including combat wounded veterans, injured firefighters, injured members of law enforcement and other first responders. Our outdoor adventures include, but are not limited to; fishing trips, hunting trips, jeep trail rides, hiking, boating, and more.

American Heroes In Action needs your support.

Our Board of Directors

Dave Proffit
President & Founder

Outdoor enthusiast, enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, etc. Spent one year in Iraq as a contractor, working with the troops everyday. Part of the job in the APO (Army Post Office) was inspecting outgoing mail, searching for guns, bullets and hand sanitizer. In Iraq, Dave met many young men and even young women, who were mailing home Purple Heart Medals they had received after being injured in combat. Now, American Heroes In Action honors these brave men and women.
