Lives We Touched in 2017
To provide adventure based opportunities to Exceptional Warriors who served together to heal together.
The FEW’s Impact
In 2017 we put over 400 Exceptional Warriors in the field in more than 20 States, using adventure to unite peers and promote healing at no cost to the Veteran.
Your donations make this possible. Our overhead is less than 3%. Almost 100% of your donations go directly to supporting outdoor therapeutic activities. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has recognized The FEW as meeting the highest standards of public accountability and program effectiveness.
Gold Star and Honor Jumps
We were honored to make the wishes of two POW’s, of which one was a Medal of Honor recipient and the other received the Silver Star, both also earned the Purple heart as well. This was appropriately named the HONOR JUMP. Click here to watch the video!

A former Green Beret, now medically retired after missions in Afghanistan, Iraq and other troublesome places across the world, Sweger volunteers full time with The FEW and other organizations, coordinating fishing, hunting and outdoor adventure experiences for other exceptional warriors. This trip, his board of directors decided, was his.
Joe Buffalo, the lead rider of our 15-man hunting party, turns a corner on the trail and his horse sinks belly-deep into a snowdrift. The horse panics for a split second and tries to back up, but Joe kicks hard, growling something fierce at the gelding under his breath, forcing it forward into the drift.
