Members and Guests
Thanks for taking the time to read this and help.
Many of you remember the tremendous outpouring of well wishes and financial support when the entire paintball community came together to help the Trent’s daughter Peyton last year with the cost of her heart surgery.
Over $34,000 was raised in roughly ten days. It was a fantastic response and an effort that the entire paintball community is proud of. We are all grateful for her full recovery.
We wanted to continue this tradition of demonstrating that the paintball community can come together and support those that are in need of our help. With that in mind we have decided to reach out to you and ask for your help in donating to what we believe is a worthy cause and one that has a great need.
The USO Wounded Warrior Program.
There are many opinions as to the policies and politics surrounding how these brave men and woman, who serve us, received their wounds but the result is that they are wounded and need our help. Let us as a community put aside our politics and suspend our disagreements to open our hearts and wallets to help as we know we can and have done in the past.
Again, thank you
for your continued support.
All the best,
The Team at PbNation
Support our Troops by donating to the USO Wounded Warrior Program
Help support our injured troops by donating to the USO. If you donate $15 or more through PbNation to the USO Wounded Warrior Program, you'll receive this new USO badge and be entered to win a brand new $1,500 Luxe 1.5.
Without your support, the USO would not be able to provide the much-needed support that helps those wounded in defense of our nation. Please make a donation today to help support our Wounded Warriors, lift their spirits, and honor their sacrifice.
The United Service Organizations (USO) is a private, nonprofit organization that provides morale and recreational services to members of the U.S. Military. Operation Enduring Care aims to provide best-in-practice services to our Wounded Warriors, initiate new programs, and to increase awareness of the issues facing our wounded and their families throughout their recovery.
Need some encouragement to donate now?
Our good friend Darryl Trent made a one of a kind Peyton Luxe 1.5 (a $1,500 value) and he wants to pay it forward. As a thank you from his company and his family, he has decided to donate this marker to a lucky PbNation member. He was so overwhelmed by the power of the paintball community coming forward to help his daughter that he wants to now encourage people to donate to the USO.
A donation of any size is truly appreciated. However, if you donate $15 or more through PbNation, then you will receive the new USO Wounded Warriors badge as a special thank you. You will also be entered to win the one of a kind Peyton Luxe courtesy of DLX.
If you donate between $100.00 to $249.99, then you'll get a Gold Supporter
badge and your name will be included in the News thread in first post as a Gold Supporter.
If you, your team or your company donates $250.00 or more, then you'll get a Platinum Supporter
badge and your name included in the News thread in first post as a Platinum Supporter.
More about the USO Wounded Warrior Program
As our troops and their families face challenges along the path to recovery, the USO will meet our wounded warriors needs either directly or through partnerships with best-in-class organizations.
The USO will create a “community of care” to give these warriors and their families the best chance for better lives. The USO initiated Operation Enduring Care, a fund raising effort to provide $100 million to dedicate to non-medical care needed from the time of the injury through the journey to recovery. Partnerships with existing programs and organizations will be created and expanded to maximize the nation’s private-sector support for wounded warriors and their families—from the hospital back to their home communities.
USO Wounded Warriors will demonstrate that by joining together—as never before—including with government and private sector entities, services and programs can be streamlined to ensure the best possible care and support is provided to wounded warriors and their families.
As the USO continues to identify the needs of our wounded warriors and families, they develop programs that suit their needs and address relevant issues.
