Head Coach Valentine to Travel to Visit Troops Overseas
NWTF spokesperson Brenda Valentine who also serves as head coach of Bethel's archery team, is one of several personalities going overseas to support our troops as part of the Outdoors Legend Tour.
Valentine, Jim Shockey and Bill Miller will be traveling to military bases in Germany and Southwest Asia to entertain and thank U.S. troops in July.
The NWTF partnered with Armed Forces Entertainment and the Paralyzed Veterans of America's Outdoor Recreation Heritage Fund to participate in the Outdoor Legends Tour.
"Honored, humbled, flattered, anxious - there are so many adjectives to describe how I feel about being the only woman invited by Armed Forces Entertainment to join the Outdoor Legends Tour in Germany and Southwest Asia, "said Valentine. "If I can thank our troops in the field and the hospital for their service and brighten their day with news and stories of hunting, home, and the outdoors it will be a mission accomplished."
Valentine will be posting a number of blog entries during the trip to give readers a first-hand look at the tour. The posts will begin about July 16 and can be read at www.nwtf.org/blogs.
