I heard about this organization from a fellow veteran. i attended the war heroes on water tournament, I was treated like family and was able to meet fellow brothers. I felt very comfortable the entire time. iI had the best time of my life and I'm not exaggerating. Thank you to everyone that made it possible for me to enjoy such a great event.
I recently returned from a trip to Wyoming with Freedom Alliance. This was my second trip with this organization and it keeps getting better. I spent 5 days with other wounded combat veterans and couldn't have had a better time. Everyone I met was incredible from the people supporting the event to the Freedom Alliance coordinators and to the other veterans. Spending time with like-minded people is probably the best therapy you can get. Freedom Alliance planned everything and ensured that everyone had options that would make the trip comfortable no matter what. The best thing about Freedom Alliance and the people that support it is their attitude. True Patriots who can't do enough to help the veterans. It was obvious that all involved didn't consider it a job but more like an honor to give something back to those who served. It couldn't have been any better.
I recently attended a trip with Freedom Alliance for disabled veterans. I'm honestly still processing all the ways in which I benefited. I know from personal experience that a lot of disabled veterans just want to survive day to day without too many challenges. Freedom Alliance showed me that there's still a lot of ways to enjoy life other than getting by. They selected a specific group of veterans that they thought would get along and they were right. We had a great time and are already keeping in contact and planning on getting together on our own. The trip was perfectly coordinated and the support from Freedom Alliance and the true patriots that sponsored the trip was amazing. I've dealt with a lot of different organizations over the years but none have come close to making real help so painless and successful. No games, no politics, just a focus on trying to help disabled veterans. With sincere thanks, Kevin Farrell, MCPO (SEAL) USN RET
This was my first event with Freedom Alliance and I am VERY impressed! I was amazed by the level of support that small town showed. I am eternally grateful to the professional anglers that gave up time and money to take us, as individuals, fishing and sharing insights and helpful tips of their profession. I considered it a privilege to be apart of that event. Again thank you to all that donated time, effort, gifts to make it a joyous occasion for me and mt fellow veterans!
I was fortunate enough to attend the 2019 War Heroes on Water event. This fishing trip was by far the most exciting and enjoyable experience I have had.
The staff at Freedom Alliance was a pleasure to work with and ensured I had everything I needed to attend this event. They were also very accommodating and made special arrangements as I had to fly in out of state.
I am originally from southern California which is where my family still resides. I hadn't been able to visit my family in years. I wanted to fly in a week prior to the event beginning so I could spend time with my family. I wasn't able to book a flight through their website for the dates I wanted. I contacted them asking if that could be arranged, although I was more than happy to pay for it myself. Freedom Alliance was gracious enough to make sure I had a flight booked for the dates I requested.
The crew of the yacht I was assigned to was outstanding and I don't think I've seen anyone work as hard as they did to make sure I felt comfortable and had a good time.
I am extremely grateful for this opportunity and having a stress free trip like this with other veterans gave me a better outlook on life.
I can only hope more veterans will be able to attend events like this through Freedom Alliance in the future. It is my firm belief that Freedom Alliance helps disabled veterans by showing us we aren't alone and people care.

Freedom Alliance is an amazing veterans organization! I have never had such a experience with pure generous people as I did with this organization. Truly words can not express the gratitude I have for FA
Freedom Alliance is the frontrunner in Wounded Warrior/Veteran outings, hands down. Each time I've been involved with this organization, every detail associated with taking care of the Veteran is met and then exceeded.
Compassionate, Professional, The Standard . . .
The fishing trip to California gave me a new family to connect with around the US and helped me to have some time to mellow out while being with other veterans. Freedom Alliance is consistently organized with their events and any adjustments to the schedule are easily adapted and information is passed quickly to all parties. It's apparent that this non-profit and its donors really are devoted to veterans and their positive reintegration into society. I would highly recommend any veteran to sign up today and if you're considering becoming a sponsor for this organization you won't regret it. Updates are posted online for families, friends, and donors to view at any time. The hosts, sponsors, and members of Freedom Alliance are now lifetime family members that I can always count on. Thank you to everyone for your time and generosity.
Freedom Alliance is a truly professional organization that cares about the veterans it serves. From the way we were interacted with from the initial correspondence, they proved time and again that they are a first class organization.
In the 22 years of my service in the Army I never felt the love and appreciation that I felt on the war hero’s on water tournament. I am so thankful for everyone that made this event possible.
It is difficult to put into words the impact Freedom Alliance has had on the lives of those who have served and sacrificed: from providing scholarships to the children of those killed or severely wounded in action to the outdoor adventures for those who were wounded in combat and struggle with civilian life. Thanks Freedom Alliance for being there for our nation's warriors and their families
This was an incredible experience to say the least. The bonding I felt with others and being able just to relax out there and talk about everything and everything was unreal. There was a sense of calm along with the excitement of the deep blue ocean. I would recommend this program to anyone who "has been there and done that"!!!!
A huge shout out and kudos to Pepper and the staff he had with him. They were so helpful in every way and made you feel extremely welcome!!
I have never felt as appreciated more in my life. Freedom alliance does so much for Combat Veterans, they give us a place to meet other Veterans in great places. We enjoy fantasic support in helping each other sharing stories and things we learned to overcome, to help each other. All expenses are paid to help Disabled and those on a fixed income to do things we could never do. I could not recommend a Charity more.
Freedom Alliance creates experiences for Soldiers that are struggling with the transition back into the civilian population. Or the battles they're still fighting inside. This Nonprofit throws in legitimate ways to help each other. I am very withdrawn and very suspicious of outsiders. Pepper Ailor understands this and doesn't push but guides us to feel more at ease. We have a chance to talk about self help books ones that work. Rules for a Knight is written by Ethan Hawke, and talks about the code that warriors live by. The trips are all first class, the places we go are amazing. Resulting in more smiles than i have in 3 years.
These trips are not about vices, and trouble makers are never invited back. So we end up with people that want to have these experiences. We receive letters hand written for us on this last trip. It shows us who feel forgotten that are sacrifices are appreciated and people really care about us.
That was such a wonderful, successful retreat, thank you for including me. I wanted to thank all of the people(especially you)who were involved in putting together the retreat. I know what a huge effort it took to make this first Dr. Tick Warrior retreat so great. I had so much fun from the beginning till the end. It was quite apparent we all had a great time. I have never been in the company of so many people that were so welcoming and anxious to nurture new friendships. That is indeed what happened; we made many new friends. It was like being with old friends, even though we had all just met. I can't say enough about the location, the atmosphere, the people involved, the daytime adventures and of course the food. What a wonderful experience!
This organization has done an awesome job of bringing students like myself together to share our experiences and fellowship with each other. Truly can't thank these guys enough for the work they are doing. - Seth Straw
The Freedom Alliance offshore fishing experience has opened my mind and heart for the future for myself and all our brothers (and sisters). Like ripples in water or the butterfly effect very simple acts have an immense impact and influence. Living with the lasting hardships of war the day to day struggle can be consuming and anti productive. Getting to a fresh, beautiful and exotic environment opens the self to receive growth and knowledge. starting down a new path of restoration and healing by getting guidance from one another has been the most beneficial part of my journey and transition back from the front of the battlefield physically, mentally, spiritually, as well as emotionally. The relationships formed are the concrete for the foundation in maintaining a life balance that have benefits beyond words i cannot convey, but only try to help others understand how much it has helped me personally. We must also keep the spear sharp for the future war fighter and this keeps readiness and the standard very high. Its an honor to represent such a caring, generous, and loving community. We are one and i extend my personal thanks to each and every contributor to Freedom Alliance.
As a combat veteran, I had the pleasure of being honored by Freedom alliance, led by Pepper Ailor. Never in my life since the military, have I felt this type of comfort by an organization. They, as well as contributors put together a trip to Costa Rica, where we shared stories, remembering the good times, as well as the toughest of our lives. During our trip, we held seminars, fished, relaxed, and looked upon amazing scenery.. With all these amazing events, the most important thing- was being together with those comrades, that knew and lived the same story.. It was weeks ago, and as I sit at work today, I still feel my heart there, and at peace.. If you can, please donate or contribute to Freedom Alliance, because it saved my soul.
Wow! Is all I can really say. Mind blowing for combat Veterans. They have a way of reaching all aspects of reuniting and reflecting with war buddies and finding healing together.
Our family were very happy with this Blessed vacation After my husband been fighting almost 3 years on cancer we found out on couple months that he is free and Freedom Alliance helps us to celebrate my husband birthday \uD83C\uDF82 and enjoyed every moment with my husband and have a chance to keep our family together. They listened our needs for our family and matches with beautiful destination that Tina Wholen helps to become a reality our family will be always grateful.
Had a wonderful time with this non-profit. Lot's of fun and was very happy by the professionalism of everyone involved.
