Amazing organization that has been helping support active duty and veterans stay active and connected through softball in Tampa Bay, FL. AFF even made it possible for our softball team to travel to and compete in the Military World Championships and WE WON! Our group of guys wouldn't have that wonderful experience and memory, if it wasn't for the great people at American Freedom Fund.

It has been a fantastic experience to be a part of an incredible organization like the American Freedom Fund. Not only does it empower veterans through their programs, but it also allows us to maintain or reignite that sense of camaraderie that was so integral to our military experiences. So if you enjoy supporting the veteran community while getting to hit a line-drive double, blast a clay out of the air, or, if you’re like me, run a rapid and climb a rock face, then the American Freedom Fund is for you.

American Freedom fund gives an opportunity for veterans who enjoy outdoor adventures as well as those who like adrenaline rushes in a safe environment. If you like hiking through the mountains, hanging from a cliff, or taking on Catagory V rapids then this group is for you. I have enjoyed being part of this family of veterans and supporters for the last 18 months.

I have watched AFF bring veterans of all generations together to find hope, healing and joy. The friendships that have been forged through the Patriot's Shooting Team have served to build life-saving community networks for not only the team members, but their families and neighbors.

The American Freedom Fund has provided a way for the veterans in my life to do the things they love. AFF creates access and ability for vets who have enough battles to fight without the financial struggle that many outlets put on them.

I have attended and donated to some of these events. The AFF truly does bring together the veteran, active duty and civilian Networks of patriots in dc in a way that makes the city function in a healthier more apolitical, bipartisan way. Just as importantly it helps veterans.

The American Freedom Fund is a great non-for-profit organization doing things differently for a great cause. They truly go out of their way to support veterans and veteran-owned businesses including active duty service-members. They invited us to attend their M3 event and not only did we have an outstanding time we made friends. They treated us like true VIPs which many claim but often fall short. Their attention to detail makes all the difference, from venue selection to overall ambiance make their events very memorable. We will always support their activities.

Volunteering to support American Freedom Fund (AFF) as they deliver on their important mission to create purpose, community, and career opportunities for our nation's men and women who serve is an honor! AFF is the real deal in a nonprofit landscape crowded with veteran-focused groups. AFF's leadership, and all members of the AFF family, leave their egos at the door, operate with the highest ethics, and are transparent in how they use donations made to the organization. It is without hesitation that I highly recommend AFF to any volunteer, donor and/or service member seeking services.

Having spent more than a few years with these truly amazing Americans, I could not be more proud of them and the work the've done to serve the Veteran community. Their sense of commitment, transparency and dedication is one one found in the very best of non-profits. There is no doubt that every dollar they raise goes towards fulfillment of their mission.

American Freedom Fund has inspired me to begin reaching out to those around me. They have generated a growing sense of excitement by getting veterans to stay active and engaged in their respective communities as well as the veteran community as a whole by getting off the couch, going outside, and participating in a variety of events aimed to build camaraderie.

I went to the American Freedom Fund's 3M event in Washington DC in December 2017. Since that event it has been nothing, but good times with new friends that are a part of something big. AFF is doing great work with Veterans and the surrounding community. I am looking forward to the progress they will make and the impact they will have.

From an insider's perspective, I cannot be more proud of how this organization has transformed and grown in the last year. Some of the most dedicated and passionate people/veterans are combining their efforts to make AFF really stand out as an example for new generation Veteran service organizations.

The American Freedom Fund strives to empower veterans through their athletic and education programs. They give veterans an opportunity to come together in an arena (or softball field) they love and build camaraderie. Their annual M3 event provides a large donation to a different veterans service organization in support of their efforts. I can't recommend them enough.

I attended my first event with the American Freedom Fund in December of 2017. Since then I have gotten to know the people who make up this great organization and I have seen first hand the great work they do for the veteran community. In fact I was so impressed with the organization that my company is now a sponsor and I'm a member of their advisory board. If you want to get involved in helping our warriors and their families get involved with the American Freedom Fund (AFF).

AFF is an awesome organization regarding their work with Veterans, they have been a huge supporter of GW Veterans a local school organization, and other veteran-related organizations within the DC community. I met Don Brammer personally about a year ago, and he was demonstratively supportive of local veteran initiatives and of my personal career within the veteran community.

Having been involved with several veteran service organizations, I can truly say the American Freedom Fund is hitting the mark like no other. Not only is their mission to empower Veterans through our athletic, educational, and advocacy programs practical, but the events get better and better. I am truly excited to see what the future holds for this organization and I'm grateful to be a part of it.

They have done a great job supporting events and opportunities for active duty and veterans to get together, have some fun and connect. I can't overstate how important it is that veterans are able to stay connected with people who understand what they sacrificed and the difficulties adjusting to life after the military.

I could not be more proud of my work with the AFF team. Each participant of each program continues to inspire me with their commitment to continued service and dedication to each other. It amazes me each day that this group of volunteers has done so much in such a relatively short time to impact and better the community in which they serve. BZ!
