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.
Amputee Jump with the All Veteran Parachute Team
The Amputee Jump in NC with Exceptional Warrior Michael Trost and 3 other Veterans was a glorious success. The FEW was honored to team up once again with the All Veteran Parachute Team, Skydive Paraclete XP, and Byrd’s Eye Studio to provide Exceptional Warriors Michael Trost a free-fall skydiving experience.
Special thanks also to the crew of the Braggin’ Rights. Captain John put us right on the fish even through the rough weather, and First Mate Ron worked very hard to keep us cranking them into the boat. Without them, this event would not have been possible.
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.
