Help support Jared's foundation: Jared Allen Homes for Wounded Warriors
More about Jared Allen Homes for Wounded Warriors: Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors was formed in October of 2009 by retired Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen after he returned home from his USO trip to US Military Bases in the Middle East. Jared was moved by the commitment, dedication, and sacrifices that our soldiers make every day to protect our freedom. He wanted to say thank you to every soldier in the only way that Jared knows how. By embracing the conflict and making a positive life-changing difference in the lives of those who need it most, Jared and his JAH4WW will help make life for wounded vets just a little bit easier.
