American Brawn is a philanthropic non-profit guided by a board of appreciative volunteers who strive to pay back and pay-forward the commitment and sacrifice U.S. military and emergency service personnel have given for the protection of our freedom, personal welfare, communities, and country. Their primary mission is saving lives. We support and promote the efforts of Stop Soldier Suicide, an organization solely dedicated to the prevention of veterans and military personnel suicide and we offer funding to emergency service departments including police, fire and EMS for the purchase of life-saving equipment not covered by their typical funding sources.
