Scott Sabolich Prosthetics

We are currently working with Scott Sabolich Prosthetics and Research to get our Veterans amputees connected with the most advanced prosthetic technologies in the world. In partnership with OttoBoc Prosthetics, we work with the Department of Defense and the VA, to create a seamless delivery of these technologies which takes years through their approval process. Since September, we have connected 8 Veterans to this program.

Hunting for Freedom Program

The JDME & WITKOP Hunting for Freedom Program supports active service members, Veterans, and their families by providing them phenomenal world-class outdoor sporting activities at no cost to them. We do this to recognize and honor their sacrifice, encourage independence and connections with communities, and promote healing and wellness through camaraderie and a shared passion for the outdoors and hunting sports.

The Fishing for Warriors Program

The Fishing for Warriors Program is a nationwide fishing opportunity that seeks to help the brave men and women of all branches of the armed forces experience the joy, passion, and spirit, of high caliber trophy fishing events and activities at no cost to them or their family.

Flags for Veterans

The Flags for Veterans Program provides our warriors with an opportunity to experience woodworking as a way of therapeutic process. By connecting them to our woodworking shop, they make wooden flags in which they present other Veterans as part of our Peer to Peer support Program.
