Georgetown, TX – Veteran Outdoors is proud to announce an alliance with ArmyBassAnglers with promise of advancing the missions of both organizations.
“Veteran Outdoors will be able to expand into the world of professional bass fishing tournaments and give our veterans the chance to live the excitement of some high speed competitions,” said Cody Hirt, host and founder of VO. “This will be a dream come true for a lot of guys.”
The alliance will expand the reach of VO by adding the professionalism and support of ABA, who welcome the opportunity to provide the thrill of tournament bass fishing on a professional level to deserving veterans.
“We are excited at the opportunity to provide the same level of professional support to Veteran Outdoors in both arenas of fund raising and awareness that we have been able to provide to the other 3 non-profits we support,” said Cody Roberson, ABA, president and founder. “We see Veteran Outdoors as the missing link and feel they will complete our Task Force of high professional non-profits to further extend our combat power to help all veterans that love the outdoors in our battle to SUPPORT. DEFEND. FISH.”
By competing in bass tournaments, charity events and making appearances, ABA is able to support programs like Take a Soldier Fishing, Returning Heroes Home and Fishing for Freedom.
“Most of our missions in the past have been taking veterans on their dream hunting trips, and we have been searching for the right avenue to open up opportunities to get more guys out on the water. ArmyBassAnglers and Cody Roberson will do just that. We are looking forward to the friendships that will be created between us, the veterans, and the bass fishing community,” said Hirt.
VO will continue to honor the nation’s veterans with the chance to experience unique outdoor adventures while allowing the veterans to tell their amazing and life changing stories.
