WHO WE ARE

What began as one man’s vision to help the community around him has blossomed into a foundation committed to helping our nation’s heroes recognize and achieve their full potential as they return to civilian life. James Kniestedt, a veteran of United States Army Special Forces, has gone through intense combat and has seen the sacrifice of our brave service men and women. Forced to retire due to combat related injuries, he has dedicated a large portion of his time to those who have and are currently serving our nation and their families overcome the challenges of everyday life.

WHAT WE DO

Our nation’s heroes dedicated part of their lives to us, to serve us, protect us and allow us to enjoy our lives. They selflessly volunteered for duty, left their families and comforts of civilian life to risk their health and lives for the benefit of all Americans. In many cases, they have paid a heavy price. In appreciation, the Kniestedt Foundation wants to give back. Our goal is to make sure these individuals and their families are able to enjoy their life to the fullest.

HOW WE WORK

The Kniestedt Foundation is based in Texas. Our programs are open to all veterans of the United States Armed Forces and those currently serving. We work with the U.S. Government, Veterans Affairs, and other organizations to help improve quality of life for those who have and are currently serving our great nation. With a streamlined operation and dedicated volunteer staff, our foundation strives to keep operational expenses to a minimum so that we effectively deliver resources and results. Our foundation also provides additional personal support as needed.

THIS IS WHO WE ARE.
