ILLINOIS — Healing Of Our American Heroes, or HOOAH, is a statewide organization in Illinois that has developed a platform for disabled Veterans to pursue outdoor activities.

Board Member, Tom Gaither, says the founding member Tom Huffington, got the idea to create HOOAH after seeing a disabled vet on TV.

Gaither, a Marine Corp Veteran and avid outdoorsman himself, says HOOAH is providing a service to those men and women who have sacrificed for their country.
