For our generation of wounded veterans, one day a year is special. It’s the day they didn’t die.
Alive Day is not, strictly speaking, a formal thing, and probably not something you’ve ever heard of if you haven’t had the occasion to celebrate it or are not part of the military. It certainly isn’t something national, like Veterans Day or Memorial Day. But to American soldiers who have been wounded—physically, mentally, or both—in battle, Alive Day is a very real thing: It is the anniversary of the day you were wounded, the day your life changed. The day you could have been killed, or were almost killed, but weren’t. It’s the day death came right alongside you, and maybe took some of your friends, but didn’t take you. You may have survived with terrible wounds, maybe wounds nobody but you can see, but the fact is, you survived. You’re alive. And that’s a fact worth celebrating.
Reviews from our Veterans
We try our best to support every veteran, no matter the struggle
I would like to give a huge thanks to Ranger Road and Ultimate Fitness. I'm truely grateful and blessed to have their support, that in part, made an big impact on my life as a whole. The partnership with the VA through Ranger Road is a great gift for veterans having the chance to being a part of something special and the programs available to us when we are going through the darkness of our issues. The brotherhood allowed me to become appreciative and cherish everyday I awake and live life to the fullest with tremendous happiness. Thank you for opportunity to be part of the RR and UF family!
Top notch humble ppl, they show us veterans a good time I have enjoyed the few events I have done with these guys . So everybody get the word out these ppl do it for the right reasons!
Awesome organization! I’m truly thankful I was able to be part of the first RR scuba event.
I got to organize a group of volunteers for the Freedom Jump. This group included last veterans, law enforcement officers and students from a local high school. Needless to say this was quite humbling, motivating and inspirational for them. Many in this group I spoke to were pretty emotional after this experience and found themselves with a new appreciation for simple things they took for granted and a better understanding of sacrifices made by our service men and women. All were eager to come back and help again knowing what a small effort it took to get involved resulted in a bigger impact on other life’s even for a day. If you are interested in getting involved message me or Ranger Road itself.
Ranger Road is such an awesome team to be involved with. Always looking out and taking care of fellow Veterans. I can't speak highly enough about the guys in the organization. Just meet the team and I guarantee you will have a great time.
100% of the proceeds goes directly to our veteran programs, we don't have salaried employees. We need your support to continue making a difference because no one person could take on our mission.
