I am from Tri-Village Bowhunters outside of Albany, NY. We have started a campaign called Targets for Troops. We have sent targets to 2 different units in Iraq and are looking for other units who would like some targets for an archery range. Please tell me your story and we'll see what we can do to get you set up...:teeth:

I am currently on FOB Brassfield-Mora in Iraq and a fellow archer. We are on such a small base that we basically have a chow hall, a building to work out of and a bunch of mini trailer/containers to live in. Our down time is spent either in the "gym" or on a computer. I would love the opportunity to begin a small archery program as there are numerous bowhunters in my unit. Let me know what information you would need and hopefully we could work together and get something going. Thank you for your support.

Thanks for the support! :clap:
Never thought of bringing my bow to the sandbox but will definitely consider it next time! It'll beat throwing horseshoes while waiting on the jets to return!!

Currently serving in Iraq @ FOB Warhorse. We constructed an archery range over here but have improvised with making targets out of recycled cardboard. I know we would all appreciate it if you would be able to send over some better quality targets. Let me know the info you would need from us. Take care and thanks for your support!!

Please PM me your address and information to send these too. I will try to see what we can come up with. We have been sending bag targets, blocks and paper targets.

Targets

Just to update everyone..
To date we have sent targets to 4 different units overseas, with 3 more requests that just came in.

Want to let you guys that are still waiting know that we had a issue at our club recently and someone broke in and stole over $1200. We are only a small club, but we WILL raise more money. We will prevail. I will be in touch soon...

GOD BLESS YOU ALL & STAY SAFE!!
