Heroes Among Us is an IRS 501(c)(3) program (EIN 47-5596833) that provides funding for military veterans’ initiatives through different sponsored events.
Other organizations we have helped: Over the years we have provided funding for many other veteran initiatives including NTX Patriot Anglers, 22 KILL, HOMH (Help Our Military Heroes), Texas Tech University School of Nursing Veteran Scholarship program, and the Adaptive Training Foundation in Dallas.
In 2016 we teamed with Help Our Military Heroes to present a new specially adapted van to quadriplegic wounded warrior.
Since inception we have raised over $300,000 for veteran programs.
"Heroes Among Us offers financial support to those vetted organizations that support our military heroes and veterans. Our entire staff are part-time volunteers that come together to organize and conduct periodic events to raise money to which 100% of the net proceeds benefit our Veteran Initiatives and are tax deductible."
Although we support several veterans’ projects, our primary focus is in support of Patriot Anglers Fly Fishing and the Ft. Hood Soldier Recovery Unit (SRU). HAU not only provides financial support for these programs, but actively participates with them throughout the year, engaging in holiday outreach programs and personal support efforts.
“As you all know, every year we do our Christmas Outreach program with the active duty soldiers of the Soldier Recovery Unit (SRU) at Ft. Hood. This year we were finally able to sponsor them on a trip to Beavers Bend State Park in Oklahoma, with some great support from our friends at North Texas Patriot Anglers. Our group of soldiers was able to spend four days learning the skills of fly fishing for trout and share some great fun and camaraderie with the cadre of Patriot Anglers, plus they each tried their best at learning how to tie their own flies. These men and women are going through some stressful times in their lives, as they recover from wounds or sickness, so to see the smiles on their faces was truly rewarding.
And a special thanks to Lew Duckwall and his great group of volunteers. If you would like to know more about NTX Patriot Anglers, please visit their website at
Again, thanks to all of you who support Heroes Among Us, allowing us to serve those who have served for us."
