Boats, Bikes, and Overland rigs all together to host a nice weekend getaway for Veterans and their families to relax and enjoy themselves. If this sounds like an event that you would enjoy please sign up, but if you sign up we are expecting you to show up. If for any reason you need to cancel please cancel your ticket right away so another Veteran family can make it out.

Warfighter outfitters will have boats on site for the opening weekend to fish, we are hoping that the weather will cooperate and it will not be snowing. Other activates are more weather dependent so we are waiting to see how mother nature will act.

Waterfowl Hunting on Private trip Hosted by ODFW and Warfighter Outfitters

In this workshop you’ll learn duck hunting basics from ODFW staff and experienced local hunters. The morning will be a brief shotgun skills class and intro to duck hunting, followed by a live hunt at EE Wilson Wildlife Area. During the morning hunt, you’ll get fast-paced and hands-on training. After the hunt, we’ll, learn about waterfowl habitat and behavior, field dress ducks so that they are ready for cooking and discuss next steps you can take to start hunting ducks in Oregon.

This workshop is designed for new hunters – or people who have experience hunting other species but want to add duck hunting to their skill set.

Duck hunting is an authentic outdoor experience and classic connection to a sustainable, wild food source. Register today for a fun-filled morning on the duck pond. We have open spots for 10 Veterans. This has been a long time in the making with ODFW.

Battle Buddy Drive-by

Warfighter Outfitters is hosting a Battle Buddy Drive-by to check in on a fellow house bound Veteran. We will be meeting up at the old Albertsons parking lot at 11:30 on November 14th.

We will conduct a short convoy to Prescot & 76th St. to do our battle buddy check-in, and then we will double back to Prescot to make our way to Cascade station via 82nd Ave. We could do lunch, but in multiple groups due to covid restrictions. Famous Dave’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, and a few other options all share the same parking lot.

The Veteran we are checking in on is house bound due to Mesothelioma caused by Asbestos exposure during her deployment in 2009.

From Katy the Veteran we will be checking in on.

“I was a medic in the 437th Ground Ambulance Company during my deployment (volunteered to go) and part of the 852nd medical care detachment during the rest of my enlistment. For my deployment, the unit was tasked to provide Emergency Medical Services in every FOB and station where there was a semi permanent presence of soldiers, Marines, Navy or airmen was mostly at Arifjan and SPOD (Sea Port of Embarkation and Debarkation). SPOD is where there is a ton of asbestos and where I was exposed to it.”

Having the ability to do a buddy check can mean so much more than most even know. Lets show our support to a fellow Veteran that has not been able to leave the house for a long time.
