Veteran and First Responder Nights

Our Veterans and First Responders are true heroes and we want to give back to those that have given so much. Program activities include learning all aspects of horsemanship while engaging in camaraderie and fellowship. Whether you are looking for a healing environment or want an opportunity to help others heal, you are welcome to come and be a part of the Stockhands family.

Veterans and their wellbeing have always been important to Joe Walsh, a Gold Star family member himself. His father was a flight instructor for the first US operational jet powered aircraft, the Lockheed F-80 Shooting Star, and died while stationed, and on active duty on Okinawa when Joe was just 20 months old.

Joe has been involved with veterans’ related causes for years, supporting various charities, visiting the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and offering free guitar lessons to the wounded veterans there.

VetsAid plans to directly support a variety of established and tested veterans-based charities, namely those with a proven track-record that take care to provide complete and holistic care for veterans and their families, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Stockhands is so incredibly thankful to be the recipient of the 2022 grant from VetsAid!
