Local Veteran Receives All-Expenses Paid Outdoor Excursion

Veteran Outdoors to surprise Veteran with dream trip during Frontier Justice’s Grand Opening

LEE’S SUMMIT, Mo. – Veteran Outdoors will surprise a local Veteran with an all-expenses paid hunting, fishing or outdoors adventure at the grand opening celebration of Frontier Justice on Saturday, February 21 at 11 a.m.

Frontier Justice is sponsoring the trip through a donations drive during its two-day grand opening celebration on February 20-21, and will match – dollar for dollar – every donation given during these two days up to $10,000. Bren Brown, president of Frontier Justice, said Veteran Outdoors is a non-profit they share similar values.

“We owe our way of life to the men and women who stand up for our freedoms,” Brown said. “The work that Veteran Outdoors does to honor wounded Veterans and help them through the aftermath of serving our nation is tremendous, and we feel honored to help Veteran Outdoors on this mission.”

Veteran Outdoors is a volunteer-run, non-profit that honors wounded veterans for their service and sacrifice with dream adventures. The nature of outdoor activities – whether it be hunting, fishing or another activity – can be therapeutic to anyone suffering mental or physical injuries.

"While we sit at our computers and complain about email speeds and phones ringing, these guys and gals were in harm’s way trying to keep their heads from ringing,” said Cody Hirt, co-founder of Veteran Outdoors. “It might seem like a big deal to some the adventures we try to provide, but that pales in comparison to the life and liberty they have provided us. Like our motto states we are simply ‘Giving Back to Those that Gave’.”

To date, Veteran Outdoors has taken 1,137 Veterans out on adventures. Last year alone, they took 189 Veterans on adventures of all kinds spending 276 days in the field. The volunteers have taken double-leg amputees to places like Wyoming for elk, Alaska for bear, spear fishing off Coronado in California. Single-leg amputees to northern British Columbia to shoot mountain goat, as well as the safari plains of Texas for hard-to-acquire exotics. From white tail, mule deer, wild sheep and antelope to bass, salmon and tuna, Veteran Outdoors makes the dream adventures come true.

People can donate to Veteran Outdoors in person at the two-day event, or at veteran-outdoors.com. For more information about the Frontier Justice grand opening, visit this page.
