Dave Proffit - President and Founder

Outdoor enthusiast, enjoys hunting, fishing, hiking, skiing, etc. Spent one year in Iraq as a contractor, working with the troops everyday. Part of the job in the APO (Army Post Office) was inspecting outgoing mail, searching for guns, bullets and hand sanitizer. In Iraq, Dave met many young men and even young women, who were mailing home Purple Heart Medals they had received after being injured in combat. Now, American Heroes In Action honors these brave men and women.
