Kevin McFarland - Founder & President
Grew up in Melba, ID hunting and fishing with my grandpa. Joined the National Guard in 2003 then deployed to Kirkuk, Iraq in 2005 and Baghdad, Iraq in 2010. I want to help other veterans overcome and deal with the burdens of PTSD the best way I know how, in the outdoors.

Ramiro Flores Jr
I’m SFC Flores. I served on active duty for 20 years. Most of my time I served as a Ranger and Sniper. I have been deployed multiple times to Afghanistan and Iraq. On my off time I enjoy the outdoors. I believe it truly helps to put your mind at ease. I want to continue to serve by helping our Veterans get out in the wilderness.
Grew up in Melba, Idaho. I spend my free time hunting and fishing which is what lead me to start helping out as much as I could with IBV, to be someone to help find locations for get togethers, and also to be there for anyone to talk too and open up too!
Born in IF Idaho, in 1991 joined the national guard in 2009 deployed in 2010 to Kirkuk Iraq. Enjoys shooting, hunting, and long walks on the beach.
