Multiple National & World Champion pistol competitor, Dave Sevigny & Team Sevigny Performance show their respect for wounded Warriors with a special day of one on one instruction, followed by skydiving with famous Golden knight, Mike Elliot and the All Veteran Parachute Team (AVPT).

Fayetteville, NC (April 2012) – World Champion pistol shooter and firearms instructor Dave Sevigny and Anna Brooke of Team Sevigny Performance, joined with PBR (Professional Bull Riders Association), their loyal sponsor Blue Emu and famous Army Golden Knight, Mike Elliot with his All Veteran Parachute Team, along with others to host a simulated “SOF Adventure Day” for wounded warriors and professional bull riders from PBR.

Dave and Brooke did their part coaching and teaching the group how to improve their marksmanship while representing Sevigny Performance and OMB Guns.  New techniques and tricks were learned while the crowd was given a “shock and awe” performance on steel targets by Dave Sevigny.  His lightning fast magazine changes, along with his stone cold accuracy on the targets left the crowd cheering and wanting more!  However, they had to move on to the next amazing treat, a tandem skydive with the famous Golden Knight, Mike Elliot and his All Veteran Parachute Team (AVPT).  The wounded warriors and PBR guests started in the wind tunnel and it was clear there was a sense of freedom from their wheelchairs and adaptive equipment that can’t be rivaled by any other experience! For many, especially the sponsors, this was one of the best parts of the day as you can’t put a price on the smiles given to the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms.

Sevigny Performance regularly conducts LE and civilian firearm training courses. Brooke heads up the ladies team and adds a touch of class to every event, demonstrating her top notch pistol skills for the crowd and assisting Dave as he instructs. The two were able to provide an exclusive training with the new FNH FNS 9 striker-fire pistol which received rave reviews.

“At one point the three wounded warriors were in the wind tunnel with the instructors. Seeing them smile and embracing that moment was a once in a lifetime sight for Dave and I,” said Brooke, a competitive shooter and trainer for Sevigny Performance.    Dave says “ I highly respect these heroes and it was an honor to work with them.”

Patriot Promotions has teamed up with Sevigny Performance, Mike Elliot and the All Veteran Parachute Team, to plan for more Adventure Academy events, like the one you see here.   They will be hosting future veteran/wound warrior events that provide winning opportunities for wounded warriors and caregivers.

Companies should spend their marketing or charitable dollars to host their own Adventure Academy for teambuilding or cause marketing.   Seeing our combat wounded war fighters have the time of their life, makes this the most memorable way to spend your marketing dollars.

If you would like to become a sponsor of one of these events, please contact :

Special forces, businesses help each other out

By Howard Altman

It began less than two months ago as a brainstorm to help special operations forces veterans and raise awareness among local business leaders of what operators do in the field.

Have active-duty and veteran Air Force Special Tactics Squadron members, Green Berets, Marine Special Operations Command members, Rangers and SEALs teach local business leaders how to shoot machine guns and other weapons, then lead them in a competition.

Golf tournaments? Fishing derbies?

Been there, done that, says Scott Neil, a recently retired special forces master sergeant who came up with the idea. Neil, who used to train special forces members on how to shoot in urban combat situations, wanted to offer the amateurs “the same environment used by Green Berets and SEALs to test each other.”

For Neil, the event, called Shooting With SOF, was a natural for several reasons.

As a former senior enlisted adviser to the director of the Interagency Task Force at U.S. Special Operations Command, Neil was used to bringing disparate groups together to work toward a goal.

Coming on the heels of the anniversary of the demise of Osama bin Laden, the curiosity factor about special operations forces remains high.

Then there is the cool factor.

“People love to tell their buddies stories,” Neil says. “I did something you didn’t.”

After the concept was signed off on by a group of Neil’s fellow SOF veterans, including David Scott, a retired Air Force major general who served as deputy director for Socom’s Center for Special Operations, word quickly and quietly spread through the special ops and business communities. People offered to help. Without any advertising or media coverage, the teams quickly filled up.

“It was all achieved by word of mouth,” says Neil.

Shooting With SOF will not only give business leaders a chance to see how special operators work, Neil says, but it will also give special operators a chance to learn how to become successful in civilian life.

Paralyzed veterans will also get a chance to shoot, Neil says, thanks to Be Adaptive, which makes hunting and fishing equipment for the disabled. The company has a wheelchair device that allows a paralyzed shooter to use a blow tube to fire a weapon.

It all starts at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Bad Monkey, a new bar in Ybor City run by Scott. From there, the shooters will travel by limo bus to the Teneroc Shooting Sports range in Lakeland. After the competition, shooters will head back to the bar for awards, razzing and perhaps an adult beverage or two.

The inaugural Shooting With SOF benefit supports three charities:

  • The Green Beret Foundation, which provides financial resources, immediate-need supplies, caregiver assistance, and educational scholarships to wounded or ill Army Special Forces warriors and their families.
  • TAMCO Foundation, a non-partisan organization dedicated to helping severely wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
  • Black Dagger Military Hunt Club, providing peer-to-peer hunting and shooting opportunities for military men, women and family members.

Though the shooting slots are filled, anyone wanting to make a contribution to the charities or meet the special operators can attend the Cigars and Cars event at Jaguar of Tampa, 320 E. Fletcher Ave., at 6:30 p.m. Thursday or show up Saturday night at Bad Monkey Bar, 1717 E. 7th Ave., Ybor City.
