Aiming For Zero
Aiming for Zero provides the national competitive shooting community a channel through which to focus their efforts to support ending veteran suicide. Active Heroes works with clubs across the country to find creative ways within the competitive shooting sports to find creative ways to bring together veterans, military families, and supportive members of the public.
Since most suicides comes at the hand of a firearm, it became a priority of Active Heroes to provide positive, safe, and entertaining opportunities where veterans can apply their firearms skills. While at these events veterans are surrounded by like-minded enthusiasts, they enjoy the camaraderie of fellow veterans, establish new relationships, and have hours of fun! While there they can also learn about programs and services available to them in the public and private sector.
The ultimate purpose of Aiming for Zero is to reduce veteran suicide and assist Military Families by
- Targeting struggling veterans within the competitive shooting community and encouraging to participate in our events.
- Promoting camaraderie from within the competitive shooting community to help veterans cope with Post Traumatic Stress (anger, depression, loneliness, substance abuse and suicidal tendencies).
- Uniting veterans, families, and supporters and encouraging them to care for each other in times of need.
Justin Fitch – The Inspiration For Aiming For Zero

He was an active participant in the shooting sports and found competing a positive outlet to meet other veterans, civilian supporters of our troops and raise awareness of veteran suicide.
