About Us

The Veterans Afield Foundation is a faith-based, program for veterans, first responders and gold star youth. It was founded by Dave Hentosh in 2018 as a 501(c)3 organization.

Universally, there is a peace and connection with our creator when we actively participate in the outdoors. These activities bring us inherently closer to God on our own level, and walls built by tragedy and the pressures of every day life begin to melt away.

Anyone who has experienced great tribulation is permanently altered at their most basic level. The physical scars and impediments often heal quicker than those of our emotional and mental being. In short we become slaves to our “condition”.  

It is our mission to provide an avenue for renewal through hunting, fishing and other outdoor actives. Through the fellowship of group outings, the doors to healing are opened and a network of support is built.  

Our goal is to provide an avenue for a new and abundant life.


Psalm 71:20-21

20 Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up. 21 You will increase my honor and comfort me once more.
