TTAG supports veterans. We hire vets and donate time and money to vets. (News of the Texas Firearms Festival’s Veterans Appreciation Day to follow.) During my recent interview with Henry Repeating Rifles’ impresario Anthony Imperato, I asked if he’d send a couple of rifles to Veteran Outdoors [autoplay audio at the link]. The charity takes veterans hunting to help heal their psychological wounds and assimilate back into society. VO spends 110 percent of the money received directly on their outreach programs (10 percent comes from their own pockets). Mr. Imperato sent VO ten .30-30 lever guns, which they get to keep after their hunts. Press release after the jump. Stories of vets hunting with the rifles to follow . . .
For Immediate Release
Repeating Support for Veteran Outdoors by Henry Rifles
Veteran Outdoors will be well supported in the upcoming big game hunting season of 2015/ 2016 thanks to the very generous support of Henry Rifles. Henry Rifles have been a main stay in the American firearms industry since 1860. Who better to partner with than a company that believes “Made In America or Not Made at All”?
Georgetown Texas based Non Profit Veteran Outdoors is a 501c.(3) that takes veterans, primarily wounded on their dream outdoor adventures. Veteran Outdoors became an IRS determined Non-Profit in 2008 and since then have taken over 1100 Veterans on outdoor adventures. Many of these adventures are hunting adventures and to have the support of such a reputable firearm company that played such an important role in American History is so fitting.
Veteran Outdoors take an annual average of 169 warriors into the outdoors so Henry Rifles support of 10 .30/30 Brass with Octagon barrel will without a doubt support Veteran Outdoors big game needs. Whether its bear hunting in New Mexico or Elk in Wyoming or Mule Deer in West Texas the deserving Heroes will be completely outfitted with Henry Rifles, Carrying Bags and additional items. Founder of Veteran Outdoors Cody Hirt stated, “Never in the history of Veteran Outdoors have we felt so touched or blessed by an Iconic American Product for such a deserving group in those we serve”
