DAV MISSION STATEMENT
We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them; fighting for the interests of America’s injured heroes on Capitol Hill; and educating the public about the great sacrifices and needs of veterans transitioning back to civilian life.
Outdoor Buddies support for disabled veterans includes coordination of rafting trips through Warriors on Cataract.
We also organize hunts and fishing outings for disabled veterans. Outdoor Buddies is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that was founded in 1984 by representatives from Craig Hospital and Colorado Parks and Wildlife.
Originally, the organization focused on a need to find therapeutic recreational opportunities for patients who had suffered debilitating spinal cord injuries. Through the years, Outdoor Buddies has expanded its programs to assist disabled persons from all walks of life, to include disabled veterans.
