Over the course of American history millions of members of the United States Armed Forces have fought in deadly wars and battles to protect our country and our freedom. One of the tragic consequences to those engaged in these wars, the combat veterans and their families, has been the sometimes long lasting detrimental impact to their well being. It is known that a show of appreciation for that sacrifice is oftentimes great therapy for the combat veteran, and may go a long way toward recovery. The Sportsman Foundation for Military Families and its supporters help provide that therapy. Some of our supporters are listed here.

The Sportsmen's Foundation for Military Families extends heartfelt appreciation and thanks to Joan Ingalls and Raymond M. Masciarella II, trustees of the W. Bradford Ingalls Charitable Foundation for their continued support and financial contributions.

"The number one best coping skill is the ability to maintain and put forth a positive attitude, especially in the face of adversity. SFMF hunts nurture that attitude and subsequently help combat veteran-hunters cope during the ups and downs of life."
