It’s been a year for sure, but all of you made it happen and we are stoked for what’s to come. From all of us at Warfighter Outfitters, Team Overland, and Veterans Back 40 Adventure have a great holiday and new year.
We need your input!
We are going to be given the opportunity to sit down with the portland VA director and some of the department heads in a couple of weeks and are looking for your input on questions and topics you wish to hear about. Drop us a line at email@example.com so we can jot them down.
As you can imagine our Yellowstone trips are a very popular event every year since it is for such a long duration and an all paid event in such a amazing place it tends to get a very large response and even though this year we require you to bring a guest in order to keep the COVID gods at bay it did not surprise us at all to see just as many applicants.
This year we will be working in the Canyon district rebuilding the backcountry ranger corrals and livestock infrastructure in order for the park to operate on a daily basis in their respective districts. This will mark the 12 year warfighter have been in the park rebuilding infrastructure.
Without further delay here is the chosen Veteran roster for YNP 2020
Timothy Harris plus guest
Jeff Hofer plus guest
Frank Mosca plus guest
Gary Holland plus guest
Josh Spano plus guest
Tiffany Baker plus guest
Lori Arndt plus guest
Eric Koppel plus guest
Mike Hergenroeder plus guest
Dwight Blackman plus guest
Congratulations to those Warfighters who have been chosen and watch your inbox for more info and directions. For those who were not chosen this year don’t let that stop you from signing up in the future, our methods are random and we never know who will be going.
In order to be hip and compliant with COVID we had to change some things up and decided to just simply redo the application process. Each vet has to bring one working guest this year in order to maximize the accommodations. We will be drawing the recipients next week.

We are collaborating with our dear friends at Field of dreams, Inc in northern California to be able to provide a free of charge fully guided and outfitted Hog hunt in Colusa county California. Why?
Because we feel nonprofits should work together for the greater good of serving veterans and support each other as part of their mission!
About Field of Dreams:
Field of Dreams is made up of an extremely dedicated group of men and women who love the outdoors, and want to share their wealth of knowledge and means of opportunity with others. We’re incredibly grateful to be able to give back to members of the military, their families, and special needs kids in this way.
The Hunt will be a weekend in between Mid June and the 1st week of September. In order to be eligible to draw for this hunt, the veteran must be able to have or hold a hunting license and be available for the hunt within 2 weeks’ notice. Any Veteran can apply and we will provide transportation from central Oregon to the hunt location and back along with the costs of food, lodging, hunt/tag fees and provide a weapon if needed. We will be hunting off UTV’s in open terrain in a spot and stalk format.
