With snow still falling over much of the Rocky Mountains and ski boots just recently put away, Armed Forces Entertainment’s HEAVY Medal III is wheels up as it heads out on a Pacific adventure to salute troops and their families in Guam and Japan with United States Olympians Kaylin Richardson, Caroline Lalive, Sean Colgan and Nelson Carmichael.
The four U.S. Olympians are heading to the region for a salute and thank-you to U.S. Armed Forces for their dedication and service to our country. The tour, which is being organized in conjunction with Armed Forces Entertainment and American300 Warrior Tours, will feature fun and interactive stops at U.S. Military bases that offer the opportunity to meet these international athletes, share stories and allow them to say thank you for defending the colors they wore.
"Whenever we can add a fun 'downtime' activity to one of our tours it leads to a more successful mission," says Rob Powers, founder of American300 Warrior Tours, the nonprofit organization that has worked to bring HEAVY Medal Tours to Armed Forces Entertainment. "Our organizational mission is to increase the resiliency of our troops, their families and the communities that they live and operate in, by assisting the DoD's Armed Forces Entertainment department with unique and exciting programming. HEAVY Medal Tours are all about bringing America's best to our service men and women and having a great time."
In addition to meeting these incredible American athletes, troops and their families will get an up close look at two-time Olympian Nelson Carmichael’s Olympic Bronze medal from Freestyle skiing; Sean Colgan’s Congressional Olympic Team medal; Olympic items from Caroline Lalive and Kaylin Richardson as well as HEAVY Medal tour memorabilia.
Tour officials will provide updates during HEAVY Medal III as America’s athletes honor America’s heroes on this military adventure. Follow the tour at the following locations:
