Serving alongside our local community

Serving alongside our local community

American Outdoor is proud to be part of a community of veterans and service members. 

Heroes on the Water: Paddle. Fish. Heal.

In partnership with Heroes on the Water (HOW), we host kayak fishing events in Western Washington free for our nation’s heroes: veterans, active-duty military personnel, first responders, and their families. HOW, a 501(c)(3) charity, helps warriors relax, reintegrate, and rehabilitate through proven alternative therapeutic programs based on kayak fishing and the outdoors. 

The events are designed to reduce the impact of post-traumatic stress and brain injury while providing much-needed camaraderie and support. You don’t need any experience or equipment, and the program is adaptable for people with disabilities.

Join us on the water, warriors. We’re grateful to you.
