The Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife Honored The Heroes of Benghazi Attacks at the Estate of Tom Mower Sr.
May 14, 2016 ¬– SPRINGVILLE, UTAH – The real heroes of the hit movie “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” joined the Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife organization for a Patriot Celebration fundraising dinner at the estate of Tom Mower Sr on Saturday, May 14, 2016.
Mark “Oz” Geist and John “Tig” Tiegen fought in the Battle of Benghazi, Libya, from September 11 to September 12, 2012. On Sept. 11, 2012, militants attacked the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, killing Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Both Geist and Tiegen were members of the Annex Security Team, a group of six former soldiers taxed with protecting a covert CIA base. The team risked their lives and evaded capture by thwarting countless attacks in order to save the lives of 32 Americans.
After recounting their harrowing accounts, both men were recognized as true patriots by The Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife (SFW). The Sportsmen for Fish & Wildlife is a nonprofit organization that promotes the protection and enhancement of wildlife habitat. Providing quality wildlife management programs, SFW educates the public about the role hunters play in wildlife conservation, while promoting the family tradition of hunting and fishing.
SFW member efforts are having a real effect on the habitat in Utah by donating millions of dollars and tens of thousands of volunteer hours to restore game habitat. In Utah, Idaho and Wyoming more than 1,000,000 acres of public land has already been rehabilitated with SFW funds and influence. Thousands of acres of critical deer and elk winter habitat has been purchased, treated with chaining and burning, and preserved with SFW funds. More than 89% of the donations are allocated to their mission.
This was not the first time Tom Mower Sr. had honored veterans. A year before last, Marcus Luttrell, former United States Navy SEAL and author of “Lone Survivor,” participated in an event alongside former NBA star Karl Malone and Utah Governor Gary Herbert.
“These men are true heroes that make me proud to be an American,” said Tom Mower Sr., President and Co-Founder of Sisel International. Tom Mower Sr. has been a huge proponent of wildlife conservation all his life and has donated $2.5 million towards habitat restoration. This event, honoring veterans, took place at his estate where he generously donated his home and opened it up to the public.
In a statement Tom Mower Sr. said, “I feel proud to be an American and want to do everything I can to make America great again.”
