American Heroes Outdoors documents the journey, commitment, struggle and healing of our nation’s service men and women. We showcase their stories through therapeutic participation in America’s great outdoors.
Our program is a tribute to this nation’s service men and women. Their stories are compelling and real. After witnessing the dangers and horror of combat, the outdoors for many veteran military personnel is a therapy.
Although there are many definitions of a “HERO”, to be eligible for Hometown Heroes the applicant must have been a member of the United States Military, or a First Responder to include Law Enforcement, Fire, or Emergency Medical Services.
If you would like to appear as a guest on American Hero Outdoors Television, please contact us as we are reaching out to as many heroes as possible as we film each season. Guests are not only limited to military service. Law enforcement along with fire and rescue personnel are also featured.
SHARING THE STORIES OF OUR NATION’S HEROES
American Heroes Outdoors Television is a documentation of journey, commitment, struggle and healing. Our program is a tribute to this nation’s service men and women. Their stories are compelling and real. After witnessing the dangers and horror of combat, the outdoors for many veteran military personnel is a therapy. Our program contains diverse outdoor television segments in which we film and showcase a variety of settings and situations on the water, and in the woods and fields.
The Outdoors is Therapeutic Healing
We believe the outdoors makes our society better. The message we have to our viewers is twofold. Hunting and fishing is a rich heritage that can enrich the life of any man or woman. Time spent in the field or on the water cleanses the senses and soul. You don’t have to experience the horror and dangers of war to appreciate what the outdoors can offer us as individuals. Our hope with this programming however is not just to leave you with an appreciation for what the outdoors can do for people; we also want to give you a glimpse to the sacrifice, bravery and commitment of our American Heroes.
The Veterans Service Organizations “Trolling For The Troops” event is held at Camp Ripley and focuses on getting currently serving and retired soldiers in the boat together and out on the water with some of the best fishing folks in the industry!
