Primary Mission

They served us, now it is time to serve them
from hell to home
 
You don't have to go far to hear the intense stories of our fighting men and women coming home from the front lines in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other theatres of combat.

Few of us could even imagine what these brave mean and women have witnessed. The hell and mayhem of an exploding desert, smells of burning who-knows-what, living in the state of fight-or-flight for 12-18 months at a time! My God, what they give of themselves under the colors of our flag is truly heroic. 

So now what? They are back. Some are able to readjust. Others struggle. And, painfully, others will find it too difficult and choose to end the pain by ending their lives (about 15 per day). The race is on. The race is for us as Americans to catch up to the demand for support that our heroes deserve. AHR, along with many other veteran support organizations, are in the race to win

American Heroes Return was initiated to address the needs of veterans as they transition from military duty to civilian life, or from active reserve status back to inactive reserve status.  

Our veterans give SO MUCH and we must be there to support them as they return to home and find their "new normal," whatever that may be for them. They have been forever changed by their service and it is our time and responsibility to assist in engaging in their new post-service lives.

In addition, the Asst Dir of the VA says there will be 1 Million new veterans entering the work force in the next four years! As these men and women return, what we also know is that many return with a “new normal” that will impact where they go, how they live, and what type of jobs they will be more successful at...read more.
 

Training & Placement
   they served, we place

The demands of working in and around a war zone contribute to a veteran returning home with specific skill sets, strong work ethic, enhanced leadership skills and changed preferences for work environment. A program of career education and job placement has been designed specifically to address those changes in many veterans and rapidly prepare them for a career in outdoor oriented positions...read more.

  Veteran Advocacy
   who is there for them?

Whether working through claims paperwork to receive benefits the Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, or Cost Guardsman and women have earned, or checking into a VA clinic for the first time, or reporting to the emergency room at the Veterans Medical Center, NO ONE should have to go it alone.

They supported our country as a force and we need to offer them a civilian force to engage here stateside...read more.
