RAHF is all about those that raised their right hand and committed to the unknown missions in the world. Thank you for making your mission to take care of those that sacrificed themselves for our freedoms.
It would be great to see other organizations emulate what RAHF does.

Thank you!

This has got to be one of the best groups out there. The money actually goes to where it's intended, not the bank accounts of staff. If you love to fish, and want to help or donate, it's certainly appreciated. Ron DeFreitas is a stand up man.

Our military family deserve' 100% and that's exactly what this foundation does! Hats off to all the many volunteers, donors and the founding vet who unselfishly make it all happen. The stories of a day spent on the water turning into a life long friendship is pure awesome. Keep up the great work RAHF!

I started volunteering to take military service members fishing in the annual Reel American Heroes tournament in the first year. This has been the most rewarding fishing experience of my life. When the service members are on the boat, they often share stories I sense they may veey seldom share. It makes me very proud to be able to take them to enjoy a day on the water

This company does a lot for veterans and deserve the recognition. They help to make sure vets are still able to get on the Water. As a vet and knowing that fishing can relieve tension and stress, I feel they are doing a great thing. Fishing to me is a way of relaxing and this is what they try to do.

Reel American Heroes Foundation provides the opportunity for disabled veterans like myself to enjoy the great outdoors. For the past 6 years Ron and his family have done a tremendous service to the veterans who would not otherwise have had the opportunity to go out fishing. This organization is tops in my book and I will continue to support their mission whenever I can. Can't wait to go out fishing with such a great group of guys and gals in July 2017!! Please support the Reel American Heroes Foundations. Thank you. MSG (U.S. Army) Ret.

I'm a retired disabled veteran, My wife and I have participated in Reel American Heroes events for 4 years now. People ask my why I love fishing so much and I tell them, its the only time when I just can forget all the pain and be at ease; focusing on catching the next big bass, on a lake, with the sun shining on my face. The folks at Reel American Heroes makes this happen year after year here in NC and in VA. They run a great program and you can truly see the difference that it makes to veterans lives, like myself. Thank you Reel American Heroes, you are my hero, because you let me enjoy what I love to do and forget about the pain even it's for just one day. - MSG(Ret) Jose Merza, US Army

Reel American Heroes Foundation is a fantastic organization that focuses on veterans getting the opportunity to recreational fish.
I have participated in many fishing auction that have focused not he RAHF. This is a class act organization which deserves top recognition in their efforts to support out veterans.
