Honoring Our Veterans is a newly formed 501(c) 3 in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The organization's mission is to improve the quality of life for disabled veterans by providing them with recreational therapy.

Paddling therapy is ideally suited for use in aiding disabled veterans. The sport improves motor skills, coordination, and concentration. These particular skills are exactly what disabled veterans need in order to adjust to life with a disability. The benefits of the sport don't stop there however. Each veteran can choose to make their paddling time as exciting or relaxing as they choose. They can push themselves and paddle hard, or sit back and enjoy the mesmerizing motion of the water. They truly are the masters of their own destiny. For those that have mobility issues there are few experiences that can compare to gliding over the water at an impressive speed under the towering peaks of the Teton Range, or just sitting motionless and letting the waves gently rock your boat as you gaze up at all of nature's glory.

Honoring Our Veterans welcomes any and all suggestions as we develop our kayak therapy program. We also would be thrilled to have some industry sponsors.
