"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive the Veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation"
-- George Washington  

Over the last two decades Adirondack Flagpoles, the only full time traditional wooden flagpole manufacturer in North America, has donated at least one flagpole per year to a deserving combat veteran or wounded warrior. These donations and the accompanying ceremonies, the Honor so long overlooked for so many who sacrificed greatly for our Freedom, have led to the most rewarding moments of my career.

I am now finally in a position to re-focus the purpose of my work and my goals in life. With a small group of outstanding officers and other veterans we have created the AHF Foundation with one purpose only, to honor great American heroes for their Service and Sacrifice.

Twenty flagpoles per year will be fabricated, all 25' handcrafted Northern Red Oak, delivered and installed with a military ceremony for each deserving recipient. Initially for our first year the veterans selected will be from the Northeastern United States to streamline the logistics of delivery and ceremonies whenever possible.

One of my closest flagpole clients called the Heroes Foundation "the capstone of my career".  I was born for this, this is my mission, and the culmination of my work honoring America with my Adirondack Flagpoles. Please join me in this worthy cause.

Thank you,  Danny Kaifetz.
