Veteran Outdoors is proud to announce that Hunts For Heroes will be the title sponsor for the upcoming 2009 airing season.
Georgetown , TX – Veteran Outdoors and Hunts for Heroes have reached an agreement in which Hunts for Heroes will be the title sponsor of Veteran Outdoors for the 2009 airing season. In the agreement, Veteran Outdoors will raise awareness and money for Hunts for Heroes, which is 501(C)3 non-profit organization.
The sole purpose of Veteran Outdoors is to honor our service members that have been wounded in combat by giving them a platform to tell their story in their own words. We also give them a little something back by surprising them with their dream adventure as our way of saying “Thank You!” for all they’ve done for us.
Hunts for Heroes is dedicated to providing quality hunting and outdoor related activities to men and women that have been wounded on the field of battle in service to our country. Establishing funding for grants, scholarships, and endowments for wounded or injured veterans working for degrees in the areas of wildlife management, habitat management and game law enforcement is one of the long term goals of Hunts for Heroes. All adventures are free of charge for service men and women that are approved by organizations such as those sanctioned by the United States Military.
“We are proud of our affiliation with Hunts for Heroes. We feel it is our duty to raise awareness about the great work that Hunts for Heroes is doing, and also help them raise funding so they can continue their current work, as well as to help them reach their long term goal of providing scholarships for deserving heroes”, says Cody Hirt, President of Veteran Outdoors.
VO is a platform for wounded veterans to tell their own stories while enjoying the thrill and surprise of taking their once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Whether it’s enabling a veteran to take their children hunting again or going after a trophy themselves, Veteran Outdoors provides the opportunity to make their dreams a reality! The viewer is engaged in the adventure as the wounded veteran, along with their hosts, pursues the trophy of their dreams. Throughout the show, the veterans share their stories; not told by politicians, not told by the media, but in the veteran’s own words. Our wounded veterans tell about their lives before joining the military, their service and recovery and our viewers get a glimpse into the real lives of each veteran honored on Veteran Outdoors. This gripping combination is both emotional and uplifting.
Veteran Outdoors will begin airing nationwide this summer. An official announcement with airing details will be released this week.
