When I first met Tim Medvetz, I was intimidated by his stature but I realized quickly that it was just his heart that is overwhelmingly large in size. The generosity and care that he extends to the veterans of The Heroes Project is beyond inspiring. I can't say that I have witnessed any program like it. In it's passion, it's message and it's commitment to humanity, it accomplishes something utterly unique. This program displays the courage, resilience and undying will of those who have suffered catastrophic injuries from the war, but deters us away from our common feelings of pity or sorrow. Rather, by both facilitating and documenting the journeys of ...

DEAN WINTERS’ WISH TO SUPPORT THE HEROES PROJECT: Hi, my name is Dean Winters, and, as most of you know, the real mayhem has been happening overseas for the past nine years during the Iraq and Afghanistan war – sending back America’s favorite sons and daughters as amputees and multiple amputees.

David James Elliot

Working closely with our military while filming the television show ‘JAG’, I developed an enormous gratitude for our ‘brothers in arms’ and the sacrifices they make as a matter of course. I thank god everyday for our men and women in uniform who protect this country. Which is what first attracted me to Tim. I met Tim through a mutual friend and was immediately intrigued because I had also seen the Discovery channel series where Tim made his first ever Everest attempt ( he fell 350 yards short of the summit on his first attempt though he never quit and was successful on his second) Tim has a magnetic personality and, shall we say, a large ...

I first met Tim at a party in Hollywood. Tim was fresh off of the summit of Mt. Everest and I was full of questions for him, testing his patience I am quite sure. It turns out we actually had a lot of common interests in all things adventure, except he actually DID some of the things that I only read about. Over the course of the following year, 2008, Tim and I got together more and more often as friends who shared an interest in things like the outdoors, sports, and music. But most importantly, we all seem to share a same sense of family, brotherhood , and honor-things that seem to at times be missing too often in this hyper-fast information ...
