Military Jeepers is spearheading a fundraiser for Camp Hope in Missouri. Camp Hope is dedicated to honoring the fallen by helping the wounded. Camp Hope was created by Gold Star parents, William “Mike” and Galia White to honor the memory of their son. Pfc Christopher Neal White, a 23-year-old Marine, was tragically killed in action in Al Anbar, Iraq on June 20, 2006.
From Camp Hope’s Website:
Camp Hope provides FREE outdoor adventures to combat wounded veterans of the War on Terror and active-duty combat-wounded Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Sailors. The mission of Camp Hope is to allow wounded warriors the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities with dignity – to not think about what they “can’t” do, only to think what they want to do. Soldiers can shoot skeet, hunt turkey and deer, fish, hike, explore the country, or relax around the ever-burning firepit.
More than 42,000 Soldiers have been wounded in the War on Terror. Camp Hope is committed to letting them heal through nature. Since 2007, dozens of Soldiers – male and female, representing all branches of the military, from across the country, have experienced, enjoyed, and sought solace at Camp Hope.
Military Jeepers worked with Marcus Luttrell to get one of the original Military Jeepers Operator Style Hats signed by Marcus to be auctioned off on ebay in a Charity auction where 100% of the money raised will go directly to Camp Hope. Marcus is a great guy and did not hesitate to help us support a great cause. If you have not checked out Marcus Luttrell’s facebook page or his website, give them a click.
The ebay auction will be run by Camp Hope and the item will be shipped out to the winning bidder from Military Jeepers. Once the auction is posted, we will share the information and hope that everyone will help spread the word.
