FLW OUTDOORS HOSTS SOLDIERS BEFORE DEPLOYMENT
Advisory for Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011
WHAT: FLW Outdoors is opening its headquarters for 85 members of the 940th Military Police Company of the Kentucky Army National Guard based out of Walton, Ky. prior to their upcoming deployment to Iraq, which is part of the largest Kentucky Army National Guard mobilization ever.
WHEN: 10 a.m., Wednesday, February 23, 2011
WHERE: FLW Outdoors headquarters
30 Gamble Lane
NOTES: Members of the 940th Military Police Company will visit the headquarters of FLW Outdoors and enjoy a tour of the facilities, rides in Ranger boat simulators, lunch with the staff and more. The visit provides a well-deserved break from the arduous training the soldiers have been engaged in prior to their deployment to Iraq.
FLW Outdoors has a long-standing relationship with the National Guard and this event provides another avenue for the organization to show appreciation to our service men and women, and the sacrifices they make for our country.
