TV host, outdoorsman, photographer, blogger, and Tactical-Life.com contibutor has been named as a national spokesman for the Hope For The Warriors Outdoor Adventures Program. Hope For The Warriors is a national nonprofit organization that assists post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.
Kayser (markkayser.com) is the host of “North American Hunter” on NBC Sports and “The Ultimate Buck Zone” on Outdoor Channel. Kayser is also on the national pro staff for Mossy Oak, Nikon, Cabela’s, Mathews, Hornady and Thompson Center.
“Service members mean everything for the security of our country and the veterans of our recent wars deserve all the help we can give them when they return from deployment,” said Kayser. “The outdoors and particularly hunting is everything to my family, and that’s why I believe the Outdoor Adventures program of the Hope For The Warriors is so important. It brings the families of service members who have served together in an outdoor setting. For me, that’s the best place to heal and reacquaint, and why I’m proud to be able to help with this goal.”
As a spokesman, Kayser will help Hope For The Warriors fulfill their mission to restore self, family and hope to military families through a multitude of programs, including the Outdoor Adventures Program. Hope For The Warriors Outdoor Adventures Program provides adaptive opportunities for wounded heroes to participate in sporting activities in the great outdoors. Service members, who previously embraced an outdoorsman lifestyle, as well as those new to wilderness sports, are introduced to recreational opportunities on the road to recovery.
Kayser volunteered to be the spokesperson for Hope For The Warriors, lending his expertise to support wounded service members and military families across the country. He has already hosted a wounded veteran and his spouse for a weekend of hunting and outdoor fun. Kayser and Hope For The Warriors are excited to partner on future outdoor opportunities too.
“For these veterans, hunting and fishing is not just a pastime, it is a form of therapy and a key part of their recovery,” Robin Kelleher, Hope For The Warriors president said. “We are thankful that Mark has stepped forward to bring attention to the benefits and to providing additional opportunities to our proud military families.”
The mission of Hope For The Warriors (hopeforthewarriors.org) is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.
