The mission statement behind ArmyBassAnglers (ABA) is “SUPPORT. DEFEND. FISH.,” and Brian Welde, President and founder of Angling-Technologies.com, pledged their support today of the ABA mission through a multi-year sponsorship.
“We are very excited to partner with Army Bass Anglers and offer our mapping service as a new weapon in the Army Bass Angler arsenal. Our seamless, nationwide, interactive fishing map (mapper.angling-technologies.com) is based on our previous experience building mapping solutions for the military. Situational awareness is critical for enhancing your time on the water. We supply situational awareness by offering anglers a wide variety of different types of information and then allowing anglers to gather their own intelligence about the best places to fish.
By working directly for the military we have witnessed firsthand the incredible dedication and sacrifice the men and women in our armed forces make every day. It is our privilege to continue supporting these talented, hardworking individuals with superior information technology geared towards outdoor recreation.”
ABA consists of 12 Pro Staff anglers and hundreds Coalition Pro Staff and Task Force anglers all of whom are active duty or retired U.S. military from all branches of service. The group currently fishes Bass Champs on the World Fishing Network and numerous grass roots events and gained national prominence as the Ceremonial Launch Boats for the past four Bassmasters Classics, while raising national awareness for Returning Heroes Home, Heroes on the Water and Veteran Outdoors.
The Warrior & Family Support Center, ABA’s original nonprofit it supported, is a 12,000 square-foot rehabilitation center, funded solely by private donations. The center provides space for wounded soldiers undergoing treatment in San Antonio, allowing them to spend private time with their friends and families when they are not actively participating in rehabilitative treatment.
Heroes on the Water (HOW) is a national nonprofit 501c3 that focuses its efforts on kayaking and fishing as a rehabilitative outdoor activity for wounded veterans recovering from their combat injures. HOW is an incredible alternative to power boat fishing and outdoor recreation that has provided very inspiring results, both in physical and emotional rehabilitation.
Veteran Outdoors is a nonprofit 501c3 that completes the ArmyBassAngler’s Task Force of nonprofits. Veteran Outdoors provides big game one-of-a-kind hunting and fishing experiences for wounded veterans with some of the country’s most experienced professionals and guides all focused on the wounded hero and his story.
