“Veterans Day is every day in my mind,” says Tim. “I’m fortunate to do what I do for a living because of those that sacrifice their lives for our freedom. Giving back is so important and I’m honored to be able to help.”
Special Ops Xcursions provide active-duty SOF service members, their teams, and families with outdoor adventures. Events include hunting, fishing, shooting trap and skeet, archery range days, family retreats and intro to the outdoors programs, African Safaris, music writing getaways with Nashville recording artists, camping, and more.

During the competition, the fallens’ stories are shared, so all can remember who these heroes were and the lives they led.
