Activities

Making A Difference

UTV rides

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies for dealing with this challenge. UTV excursions are just one of the activities we provide to bridge the gap with our participants.  Veteran Outreach is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

Lake and stream fishing-Boating and Kayaking

At Patriot Pines Outdoors, we are excited to have access to three lakes that are within 20 min from Forest lakes. This portion of our program is offered Spring through Fall.  Our pontoon boat is ADA accessible with the newly added wheel chair ramp.  We are striving to make a difference and our kayaks are also available for checkout to our Veterans, First Responders and LEO's, and  we invite you to learn more and lend your support.

Relaxing in the Pines

Our goal is to promote a relaxing atmosphere to give our Veterans a place to decompress and take a time out and there is no better place than God's country. Learn more about our relaxing area of Arizona by getting in touch with our team today.

Hunting

With our organization’s mission always in mind, we strive to get as many qualified AZGFD Veterans for the donated tag program as we can. Please, if you know someone that qualifies have them contact us and get on our list. You do not have to be a disabled veteran to participate with PPO, that only applies to the AZGFD tag transfer program.  Veteran hunting is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact.  Veterans from current action to WWII have been able to fill their freezers with healthy organic meat for their families. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.

Patriot Pines Outdoors at a Glance

A Bit of Background

Patriot Pines Outdoors Background Info:

 

Many years ago I had the opportunity to meet Brian Mancini on a Home Depot Veteran project. 

 

On this day I can honestly say I met a true hero and patriot and it wasn’t for what he did while in the military. You see Brian is what I and anyone else who had the pleasure of meeting him would call selfless. 

 

From the first time I met Brian all he wanted to do is help other veterans adapt to life outside the military and get the V.A. to take better care of the veterans. 

 

Many years later after becoming friends my family was fortunate enough to purchase a cabin in Forest Lakes AZ.  I ran the idea by Brian about starting another foundation with us and he thought it was a great idea. 

 

We decided this would be a base camp so to speak where we would focus on alternative nature therapies.  I would focus on hunting and he could head up the fishing which he loved so much to do. We would also have UTV excursions, campfires, great meals and relaxation. 

 

Unfortunately in March of 2017 God had other plans for Brian. I struggled with this for a long while, but never gave up on the vision and mission we started together. This idea or dream if you will has now come to fruition, and we call it Patriot Pines Outdoors. 

 

Brian will always be in our hearts and he will always be a huge part of Patriot Pines Outdoors.

 

This 60 minutes story is about our hero and friend Brian Mancini and how even in death this amazing man continues his selflessness and his pursuit help others.
