American Heroes for North Carolina is a 501(c)3 nonprofit founded by veterans. Our vision is to make the Triad area a welcoming place for veterans. We strive to educate the community about the importance of supporting our vets and the value they bring to our community. Also, we work to educate veterans about their post-military opportunities and to encourage them to return to the Triad to live, work, and play.
AH4NC promotes the interests of former members of the US Armed Services who served their country honorably, whose family members sacrificed their time and treasure to make it possible for their family to serve and to protect America’s freedoms, and who now seek to fulfill their goals to become productive citizens and community leaders.
AH4NC champions the truth that most veterans return from serving their country as mature, confident, trained leaders of character, who make stellar employees and who bring great value to our society. Unfortunately, too many Americans believe the stereotypes about the struggling veteran or about the “American Sniper Effect” (in other words, they believe the lie that all veterans return with PTSD and all veterans need a handout). AH4NC highlights the successes of our returning veterans and celebrates the dedication, commitment, and resilience of those who served in the Armed Forces.
AH4NC hosts two major events each year to focus attention on the success of veterans: In May, we host a Veterans Appreciation Day to provide a day of fun and relaxation to veterans and their families and to provide the public an opportunity to enjoy a day with our veterans and to say “thanks” to those who served. In November, we host a Veterans Recognition Banquet to highlight veterans who have served their country honorably and who have returned to our community to lead successful business careers.
