Join Quantico Tactical In Supporting The Duskin & Stephens Foundation

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

What is the Duskin & Stephens Foundation?
The Duskin & Stephens Foundation was setup and is operated by team members of CW2 “Big Mike” Duskin and SFC Riley Stephens who were KIA in the Fall of 2012 in Afghanistan. The foundation supports the families and provides private educational opportunities for children of Special Operations Soldiers Killed In Action (KIA).

How Did the Duskin & Stephens Foundation Start and Who Runs it?
In 2013, after their teammates Mike Duskin and Riley Stephens were killed in action in Wardak Province, Afghanistan, two active duty Green Berets struggled with the best way to honor the memory and support the families of their fallen brothers.

What started as a plan to buy a keg, grill hamburgers and hotdogs and tell stories about Duskin and Stephens to their families, morphed into a highly organized community event, attended by over 1,000 Special Forces Soldiers, Sailors, Marines & Airmen & their families and raised over $84,000.

This one event grew into the Duskin and Stephens Foundation, a non-profit organization with multiple annual events that support the families of fallen members of Special Operations Forces and the educational needs of children of Special Operations Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines.

The annual Duskin & Stephens “Beef & Beer” event is held the Thursday before Memorial Day at the Pinehurst Fair Barn and attracts over 2,500 people from the Fort Bragg area Special Operations Community and their Supporters.

Why is Duskin & Stephens Different?
We have all grown tired of “Charities” which seem to have highly paid staff who spend money on extravagant trips with little money left over for those they purport to support. That is NOT Duskin & Stephens Foundation.

Duskin & Stephens is a true grass roots organiztion. 100% of the event is planned by active duty soldiers, their spouses and supporters, 100% of the items are donated by the surrounding community and 100% of the proceeds are given back to support the families of Special Forces Soldiers Killed In Action, mainly through private education of their children.

But Don’t All Troops KIA Deserve to be Honored and Their Families Supported?Absolutely. Quantico Tactical has chosen to make a difference by supporting the Duskin & Stephens Foundation which local to our Corp HQ and is part of our community. We encourage our customers, friends and family to find and support local grass-roots organizations to honor our fallen brothers/sisters and support their families. If you are unable to do so, we ask that your consider supporting Duskin & Stephens

What is Quantico Tactical Doing to Help?

-Donating 100% of our Store & Web Gross Profits from 25 May to 29 May to the Founation
-Coordinated with S&W, SIG Sauer and Beretta to Donate Weapons for the Beef & Beer Silent Auction. Special thanks to S&W, Sig and Beretta for donating the weapons.

Give Back This Memorial Day with the Polaris “RZR Salute to Heroes” Donation Campaign

Tuesday, May 16th, 2017

Minneapolis, May 15, 2017 – Polaris is partnering with Warfighter Made to give back to injured service members and veterans this Memorial Day with the “RZR Salute to Heroes” donation campaign. The campaign is raising funds for the non-profit organization Warfighter Made so they can continue to provide off-road experiences and customized vehicles to ill, injured, and combat-wounded service members and veterans.

“Polaris Government & Defense is proud to provide customized military vehicles for operational use, but Polaris also supports our warfighters when they return home through campaigns like this and with our commercial products like RZR,” John Olson, PhD, vice president and general manager of Polaris Government and Defense. “This campaign helps celebrate what off-road recreational freedom means to our nation’s wounded warrior heroes by getting them into the RZR, one of our most popular sport off-road vehicles, when they return home.

Starting today Polaris RZR is raising money in two ways, with 100 percent of the donations going directly to Warfighter Made. Those who donate through the “RZR Salute to Heroes”­ website will be entered to win one of 16 prizes from industry partners. Donors will also be eligible to win the grand prize, a custom military-themed RZR XP Turbo EPS built by the Diesel Brothers. Additionally, RZR will contribute $5 (up to $25,000) for every social media post that includes a picture of a RZR, a RZR Life story, and #RZRLife or #RZRSalutetoHeroes.

Warfighter Made was established in 2012, with the goal of empowering and improving the quality of life for ill, injured and combat-wounded service members and veterans, and improving their quality of life by keeping them connected to their families, friends, community and the world. The organization offers programs, as like recreational therapy, through the adaptation and customization of trucks, motorcycles and off-road vehicles. Polaris RZRs are used during these recreational trips

“Warfighter Made makes a difference for so many veterans by giving them the opportunity to continue to do the things they enjoy most, like off-roading.” said Matt Boone, RZR Marketing Manager. “RZR has been a partner of Warfighter Made for a number of years, andwe wanted to show our continued support for the incredible work they do with our country’s heroes.”
