About Us

FREEDOM FORWARD, is a non-profit, veteran owned and operated charity dedicated to providing a wide range of support to service members.

Freedom Forward was established to ensure every service member receives the support they need, the opportunities they deserve, entertainment they can enjoy, and of course a measure of thanks and appreciation from the community they have sacrificed for. We recognize all those who swore an oath in service to our nation are the building blocks of our collective freedom, and way of life. It’s only right, we celebrate that freedom and provide an entertaining and supportive environment where those patriots can reflect on what they fought to protect. Freedom Forward is grateful to accept donations in the form of your time and, of course, your generous donations, which are turned directly over to our US military veterans, law enforcement, interagency, first responders, and their families. We encourage every American citizen to show up, have a great time, and support our guests of honor: those who serve, protect, and sacrifice for our great nation, our American Heroes.
