Join Us in Thanking Those That Have Served
The men and women that have served on the front lines in our armed forces, law enforcement and fire departments, have a job that requires them to sacrifice their own lives every day above all others. Not many of us can say that, nor understand what that truly means – how these sacrifices have impacted them and their families. Bucks for the Brave allows the loved ones and communities that support these heroes to share their stories and unite us all in honoring and recognizing their service to our great nation.
This contest allows you to nominate Veterans (no longer serving), Retired Firefighters and Law Enforcement Retirees to win the hunt of a lifetime. This all-inclusive hunt (as defined in our official rules and regulations) will take place Veteran’s Day Weekend, November 8-12, 2019, at Trinity Oak’s Thumbtack Ranch in Batesville, TX. We will be awarding one winner from each of our seven categories: Air Force Veteran, Army Veteran, Coast Guard Veteran, Marine Corps Veteran, Navy Veteran, Retired Firefighter, Retired Law Enforcement. 7 HEROES WILL WIN!
Honor and recognize the Hero in your life! Submit a photo along with a short essay as to why this Hero should be chosen to win. All nominations must be submitted by September 15th.
Please note, nominees must no longer be serving in the military, this includes Active Duty, National Guard or Reserves. Firefighters and Law Enforcement must be retired and no longer working in those roles. See our official rules for more information.
Nominees will be contacted to verify eligibility (see official rules and regulations) and availability to attend the hunt scheduled for November 2019. ONE (1) hero from each category will be selected by a committee made up of contest partners, Veterans and Retirees of Law Enforcement and Firefighters. These 7 heroes will be our Grand Prize Winners that are announced on October 5, 2019.
