Impact A Hero (IAH) was started in Cincinnati, Ohio in 2004 by founder Richard (Dick) Lynch. Having watched the men and women return home from the War on Terror with serious physical and emotional wounds, he was determined to help them with their new life challenges and situations - wounded heroes was his new mission in life.
