I first heard about this organization after meeting Cody Hirt. I worked for a store where he came in to purchase items for this organization. I am the son of a veteran, and have other family and friends who are currently serving, or are veterans themselves. I have seen a few videos of their work and the support for our military veterans and believe that Veteran Outdoors Inc is a wonderful support for those injured veterans, and those who have served who enjoy the outdoors.

I have had the joy and privilege of meeting many of the men and women involved with Veteran Outdoors. There is nothing more humbling than hugging the neck of a veterans wife that watched her husband learn to walk again with two prosthetic legs and then proceed to go on amazing hunts that completely put him to the test. We have made it a family affair and taught our sons how important it is to show respect and admiration to these veterans. It is such an emotional experience getting to meet the veterans and hear there truly amazing stories and how Veteran Outdoors has changed their lives. So proud of this organization and all that they have done for veterans and how much they have taught me and my family.

I have personally witnessed many veterans surprised by this wonderful organization.
It is an absolute joy to watch these young men and women receive hunts of a lifetime.
Veteran Outdoors goes above and beyond to accommodate each one of them and whatever
Their specific needs might be. They customize each hunt for the individual and surround them
With honor and love. I am so proud of what this organization is doing and will continue to do.
I have cried many tears of joy hearing the stories the veterans have shared about their experiences.
Thank you Veteran Outdoors for doing AMAZING work and giving these young men and women
The respect and love they deserve.

I would like to thank Veteran Outdoors and all the wonderful people who are part of it. VO has made it possible for a band of brothers to reunite and have that camaraderie that we have had since long ago. Going out fishing especially with my brothers is a healing process that is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!!!

One of my buddies told me to keep a weekend open for "Operation Salmon" and I'm glad I went to it. It was an awesome time spent hanging out with othe veterans and just being able to get away from the daily grind of civvie life. We took a visit to see our fallen comrades at the Tomahawk memorial and in their honor attempted to drain the rivers and creeks of salmon to give homage to them. It was peaceful as well as a rewarding experience and I encourage other veterans to make the trip. Tomahawks!

I've volunteered for a program the last two years that veteran outdoors sponsors. I think it is a wonderful experience to see the faces of these veterans when they get together and fish for salmon. I've had the opportunity to meet Toby James Nunn and I appreciate everything that he and others do for our veterans. The events that veterans outdoors sponsors are very detailed. I look forward to continuing to volunteer my time at these events. Thank you veteran outdoors.

Over the years I have been lucky to call some of the guys from VO friends. I have always been awestruck at their commitment to helping veterans have a chance to have a great hunt. The stories they have shared with me brought me to tears on multiple occasions. I will continue to promote, and donate to VO because I can directly see the impact they make on our veterans lives!

Veteran Outdoors sent my step son and I on a bear hunt in Canada this past spring. My stepson bagged a huge black bear! The trip provided great healing in an environment that could only be described as god's country, and created a memory that my stepson will someday share with his kids!
VO has also sponsored operation salmon for the last two years. A three day salmon fishing reunion trip of veterans and active duty soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 23rd Infantry. It's not just a fishing trip it a reunion of a band of brothers.
VO has also covered the cost of my tackle and even some rods to take veterans bank fishing for fall salmon in the tributaries of the Columbia River for the last 3 years. I would not be able to reach nearly as many veterans without the support of Veteran Outdoors! Thanks to Veterans Outdoors I was able to personally pay for a guide to take three veterans out fishing in Astoria!

As a veteran connected to a large veteran network, I can honestly lend my thanks and appreciation to this great organization. Aside from the hundreds of hours I know that each of the organizational leaders of Veteran Outdoors have spent for veterans they have also spent in their community.

My husband recently returned from a 10 month deployment. We decided before he left that I deserved a "momma survived deployment with 4 kids" vacation. Veteran outdoors generously donated airfare so we could go on a once in a lifetime tropical vacation! My husband and I are forever greatful for their generosity!

Veteran outdoors has been an outstanding influence to many wounded warriors. I know , because I saw first hand what they did for my brother. They brought him happiness, belief in himself, and most of all the willingness to achieve his goals. Thank you Cody and staff for everything you have done for my brother and his family. Sincerely, Bill Scrogin!

Truly a great group of Americans who give back to the veteran community of Texas and around the US. Veteran Outdoors is a grassroots organization that is changing the lives of US service men and women, both active and formerly active, by providing them an opportunity to reconnect with the great outdoors and learn how to cope with injuries sustained while serving in a combat theater.

As a combat veteran, I strongly recommend this organization. They do a lot for the veteran community by providing veterans with opportunities to learn new skills as well as giving back to the veteran community.

The whole Veteran Outdoors organization has been nothing short of amazing! I was a Gifted Veteran at a local event here in S. Texas. From the moment the organizers got us all together, it was nothing but smiles and laughter! From the organizers, sponsors, volunteers, etc.! I couldn't have had a better time with this bunch! It lasted for three days streight! Just kept getting better, all the while too! Trust in knowing this group looks out for it's members, and all other Veterans! Thank you!!! Thank you!
