TEMECULA, Calif., Nov. 8, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --


Outdoor Channel, America's Leader In Outdoor TV, and Folds of Honor Foundation, a leading nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational scholarships otherwise unavailable to the spouses and children of soldiers killed or disabled in service to our country.


Last week, the Folds of Honor Foundation unveiled plans for their first-ever "Patriot Range Day" – an initiative designed to allow shooters nationwide to combine their passion for the sport of shooting with their appreciation of American heroes. Over the course of Veterans Day weekend (November 8th - 11th), participating public and private shooting ranges nationwide will request a minimum of $1 as a donation from each shooter, proceeds of which will go directly to the Folds of Honor Foundation.

Outdoor Channel is honored to join Folds of Honor Foundation as a partner in the Patriot Range Day effort to celebrate the service of U.S. military veterans. Moreover, one of the network's marquee personalities and a leading talent in outdoor entertainment, Michael Waddell has taken part in a public service announcement (PSA) to spread the word on this noteworthy Veterans Day initiative.

Outdoor Channel is a continued supporter of active, reserve, retired and honorably discharged members of the U.S. Armed Forces. The network would like to encourage its fans to salute these heroic citizens for their service and dedication to the United States of America.
