Directly following the 9/11 attack on our nation, the first soldiers to enter Afghanistan, on horseback, were the ODA 595 Special Forces Group. Their historic and unconventional warfare experience earned them the moniker, “The Horse Soldiers” and has been brought to life in the declassified true story Hollywood film, “12 Strong”.


Fast forward 15 years and the American Freedom Distillery and Horse Soldier Bourbon were started. Forged in fire, every bottle of Horse Soldier bourbon is molded by steel from the rubble of the World Trade Center. Authentic, All-American and Award Winning, these bottles are a part of American history and will be specially autographed by Scott Neil, former Green Beret and Co-founder of Horse Soldier Bourbon - join us as we kick off our 2nd annual VFR golf outing September 8th, 2023.


We are currently accepting items for our fundraiser and auction on September 9th. Please contact Kyah Fernandez at Our Platinum sponsor will have the honor of welcoming Scott Neil and Horse Soldier Bourbon to our event! Enjoy one on one time with Scott throughout the day as he tells stories from his time in Afghanistan. Refreshing bourbon cocktails will be served on the Live Legendary Long Drive hole sponsored by Horse Soldier Bourbon.
