Cowboys and Troops Reunite at Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

LAS VEGAS-   The PRCA ProRodeo Wrangler National Finals Rodeo will come to a close this Saturday with the 10th and final competition.  Hundreds of Cowboys and Cowgirls will have competed for top honors but only a few will go away from here world champions… the competition is fierce to say the least.

For the 4th straight year, American300 working with Wrangler and PRCA ProRodeo will showcase service members on the final nights performance as part of the evenings themed 'Wrangler National Patriot Night'.  While the evening is dedicated to the effort that Wrangler put forward 4 years ago to raise funds and awareness for our fallen and wounded service members, it is also a special night for Senior Master Sergeant Doug Simmons and Gunnery Sergeant Andrew Balcunas.  The Air Force and Marine Corps non-commissioned officers will be special guests as part of a reunion program.

"During our first American300 Wrangler National Patriot Memorial Day Troop back in 2010 we came up with the idea of inviting a few service members that our Cowboys and Cowgirls met while on tour to come to the WranglerNFR," said Jeff Chadwick, Director of Wrangler's western events "We just wish that we could fly in the thousands that we meet each year, but turning the spotlight on a few on behalf of all is the next best thing."

No Federal Endorsement of Sponsors or Nonprofit Implied or Intended. American300 is an all volunteer 501c3 NGO/PVO, working to increase the resiliency of our Armed Forces.  American300 volunteers and veterans:  John Bates and Robi Powers will be serving as liaisons for our service members during this engagement with the PRCA WranglerNFR.
