PTS – Post Traumatic Stress
An exceptional collection of hunting and fishing experts and many Veteran and active duty volunteers who create a culture and environment of support for every client, on an individual basis.
For every event we have a few small goals.
#1 – Get each veteran in connection with other veterans. Before they even meet they already have a bond that the rest of us don’t understand, just put them in a room, a truck or a hunting blind with each other and get out of the way.
#2 – Take a genuine interest in their lives. We ask each of our volunteers to be exceptional listeners and to pay attention to detail. We want to be available when someone calls or wants to open up about their life. We aren’t therapists, we’re a resource. We’re here to listen to them and to care about them. We use our events to form that bond and develop trust.
#3 – Make it fun. Veterans and special needs individuals alike need a release from everyday life. The change of pace and the excitement of the event fuels them and the act of adventure alone can be enough to have a real positive impact.
#4 – Follow up. We always look forward to staying in touch with those we work with. Most of our participants make new friends while they’re on a Hero Expeditions outing and it’s very common for them to stay in touch with each other as well.
Our team provides listening services for all Veterans and family members. In addition, we provide a Resource Hub of all viable Veteran and family services available in northern Colorado. Northern Colorado runs from Broomfield north to Wyoming and east to Prospect Valley.
Please let us know if you would like to get together with one of our Qualified Listeners, perhaps over coffee. We only meet in public places to ensure you and our Listeners are kept safe.
To initiate a meeting just leave us a phone message, or email or fill out the form on our web site.

The Patriot Anglers is an all-volunteer 501(c)3 nonprofit organization committed to providing outdoor recreation for our military and veteran families. The Patriot Anglers is comprised of Veterans, military family members, and patriots that possess a unique under-standing of the toll that military service can take on a family, and being from Colorado, we also understand the value of time spent outdoors. We believe in the healing power of time spent in nature, and that reconnecting with your environment can also allow you to reconnect with those around you. We take Military Service Members, veterans, and their families on fishing expeditions throughout Colorado. We fish year-round to include boating, ice fishing, and river fishing. We provide all necessary equipment as well as skills needed to become successful fisherman. We also educate our participants on the environment/ecosystems that we fish. We have a passion for working with Veterans and their families. We have all experienced, firsthand, the difficulties facing those who choose the military life, but we firmly believe that a simple activity, such as fishing, can bring some simplicity back into your life. We believe that helping your spouse catch a fish or bait their line, can reopen the lines of communication. We believe that seeing the joy on your child’s face as they catch their first fish, can reignite your own sense of wonder. We believe that when we return to nature, without all the distractions of our everyday lives, we can then return to each other as well.
Mission, Vision, and Values
The Patriot Anglers strengthens bonds and uplifts U.S. military families past and present, by providing a unique Rocky Mountain fishing experience.
Providing regular and quality fishing experiences that assist, heal, and inspire thousands of deserving veterans and their families. Provide life-long coping strategies through fishing, hiking, boating and other outdoor activities.
Interested parties may find contact information and activity information for Patriot Anglers on our Facebook page: Patriot Anglers Fishing Community.
