Brandon’s Story

When Brandon, a US Army Captain, accepted a spot on a Mission Outdoors boat at the 2017 Washington Tuna Classic, he didn’t think he was in for anything more than a fun time and a fishing tournament.

But he got so much more. Here’s the note he wrote to the Mission Outdoors team after the event:



Shane’s Story

Shane was only a sophomore in high school on September 11th, 2001, but as soon as he saw the twin towers fall, he knew exactly what he would be doing after graduation.

“I’m sitting there with tears coming out of my eyes. I’m just walking back and forth saying, ‘They can’t do this to us. They can’t do this to us. I’m going. I have to go before they do any more.’ My mind was set. Nobody could talk me out of it.”

Shane enlisted in the Army immediately after graduating from high school in 2004. He was deployed to Iraq in 2005.



Jason’s Story

Nothing was the same for Jason after he returned home to America after a year spent in Samara, Iraq, in 2002-2003, as a military policeman. In Iraq, though he was frequently shot at by RPGs and mortars, he developed a sense of family among the others he was serving with.



Matt’s Story

In the days after September 11th, 2001,
Matt Houston had a choice:

Stay in his new career . . . or serve his country.


Our Manifesto
Why we do what we do

Many of our courageous soldiers have experienced the gamble between life and death. And for those who survive, there’s the weight of overwhelming guilt. And isolation. We remind our veterans that they don’t have to stand alone.

Watch Our Manifesto

They fought for our freedom.

Now you can fight for theirs.

Our combat veterans made unthinkable sacrifices for the simple freedoms we enjoy every day. Now, it’s their turn to enjoy those freedoms. Through hunting, fishing, and surrounding veterans with people who care, we’re fighting for something too many of our American Heroes haven’t felt in a long time… Hope.
