How Our Story Began
In 2013, United States Army AH-64 pilot Lieutenant Colonel Allen Hahn set out to establish an organization that would remember and honor our fallen pilots while also striving to support the soldiers and families who make this community so great.
One of our first projects was to restore a 1985 Custom Deluxe Chevy long-bed pickup aka “The Salt Wagon, which belong to CW4 Richard “Matt” Salter (KIA: 26 DEC 2005), a close friend of LTC Hahn. The truck will be built in the likeness of an Apache helicopter, and it will feature the names of every fallen Apache pilot, however we have other projects that are taking precedence.
The foundation also has many other long term projects in planning to include a 1-800 Call Center, Suicide Prevention, Code of Conduct improvement, an Apache warrior memorial and museum, and hosts several events each year to benefit soldiers and their families.
About the Apache Helicopter
The AH-64 is currently employed by over a dozen countries and its the world’s premiere attack helicopter. The Apache is armed with cutting edge technologies that include advanced targeting systems, avionics, and three main weapons systems: the M230 30mm cannon, Hellfire missiles, and 70mm Hydra family rockets. Quite simply, the mission of th eApache helicopter is to hung the enemy and keep our brothers and sisters on the ground safe from harm…it is very successful at this mission.
