The Charlie Daniels Journey Home Project


War horses for veterans

Our Mission: at WHFV is to equip veterans, first responders and others for success by using reflection and personal growth. Our goal is to help veterans and first responders who experienced life-disrupting trauma to recover from their limitations, to repurpose their talents and abilities to a successful life, and to reintegrate into their families, workplaces, and communities. We envision a community of active duty military, combat veterans, first responders and others who support one another as each individual moves from trauma through recovery to a productive and sustainable life.

Through exceptional horsemanship, War Horses for Veterans provides combat veterans and first responders the tools for growth personally and professionally. The combat veterans come from all over the country. The new First Responders division serves our local Kansas City departments.

Our Mission: Charlie Five’s mission is to provide our nation’s heroes with purpose, perpetuate growth of equine assisted therapy programs while raising awareness for organizations that challenge and inspire our nation’s Veterans and First Responders.

Our Theory: Equine assisted therapy programs are growing because they work. From Veterans with PTSD to children with developmental disabilities, lifelong horse lovers already know that once a horse gets a hold of your soul it’s almost as if the rest of the world goes away.

Charlie Five is a program that uses personal experience as a model to serve fellow Veterans and First Responders. Our main goal is to provide horses to qualifying Veterans and First Responders who have participated in equine therapy so they can continue their growth and forward motion on their own.

Our Objective: Provide Veterans and First Responders with an equine at no cost that will serve as their own personal therapy/service animal.
To enhance heroes lives through horsemanship.
Establish a community where individuals with similar personal experiences and goals may bond over a common interest, the horse.
Challenge and inspire our Veteran and First Responder communities to engage in activities and programs that charge their spirit and reinvigorate their passion for service.
