Frontlines to tight lines, Team overland, and Veteran outdoor adventures have teamed up under one roof with Warfighter Outfitters to provide more trips and services for veterans while stretching the donor dollar.
Dave Oathes with Frontlines to tight lines, Matthew Havniear with Team Overland and Dustin Paul with Veteran outdoor adventures have been plugging away in the nonprofit world for quite some time. They are all also combat veterans. But more importantly, their missions are to serve veterans. This is why it was a perfect fit for all of us to get under one roof and at one table to combine all of our collective talents and expertise to make a super team of board members of one nonprofit. What does this change? For one it makes the donor dollar stretch even further due to fewer insurance policies, less administrative costs and a wider donor base across the state. How is this going to help Veterans? It will increase the number of veterans served in the state and provide more opportunities for those whom don’t have to drive so far and increases the network for Veterans in the PNW. The three organizations will continue to conduct their operations as there were but with more help, more finances and even a stronger board and support chain. There really isn’t a negative aspect to this union of heavy hitters in the PNW nonprofit scene. The mission stays the same but the tools and knowledge to get it done have grown tenfold.
Please welcome Dave, Matthew, and Dustin into the family and stay tuned for more insight into our future offerings.
Last week we had the opportunity to sit and chat with the cast of “Six” on History with the Wounded Warrior project during a live stream of the episode viewing while in Hollywood. The cast is a remarkable group of guys that were genuinely interested in the lives of wounded veterans and the work we do after our service to the country.
The conversations were frank and candid as we discussed things like life on the set and how they react to watching themselves on TV and there was a lot of joking around with on set specifics about how light their packs looked on TV and they were never sweating or taking a knee of drinking water. It was good banter, to say the least. The live stream during the episode airing was on the Wounded Warrior projects Instagram feed and had a very sizable following of questions and comments.
As a result of the interaction, the story of Warfighter outfitters founder Brett Miller is showcased as well as Wounded Warrior project alumni Carlos De Leon.
With the help of the rose festival foundation and the Poznanski family foundation, Warfighter outfitters was presented a brand new track chair from action track chair. This chair will stand from a seated position, tilt and move over any terrain with a rifle or fishing rod. We will have a video soon of its capabilities. If you know a chairborne vet that wants to come out on a trip send them our way.
