Our Passion

As an organization we believe that to” Whom much is given, much is expected”. We are deeply involved with St Jude’s, Camp Soaring Eagle and The Character & Leadership Development Center at the Air Force Academy.

Camp Soaring Eagle

In 2006, Max James founded the Max F. James Family Foundation, whose mission is to “Provide blessings to the innocent and those who protect them.” The camp is a place where critically, chronically, and sometimes terminally ill children can have a normal camp experience at no cost, due to the generosity of Max and Linda James, the Foundation, AKM employees, our guests who donate, and hundreds of others.
