The mission statement behind ArmyBassAnglers (ABA) is “SUPPORT. DEFEND. FISH.” Air Sports Watch (ASW) “improves your game and your life with ionic technology,” remarks Robert Schrepfer, president of ASW, who announces his support of ABA through a multi-year sponsorship.
“The performance and success of ASW has been incredible in the last year, but one of the best parts is supporting ArmyBassAnglers and its Coalition of pro-staff anglers,” says Robert Schrepfer, an avid supporter of the military, including Tee It Up for the Troops. “For me, this association holds a special place because I know all the service people and their families make huge sacrifices so we can enjoy our freedom. I am proud to support such a great cause.”
"ABA is doing such a fantastic job of getting our heroes out on the water for some much deserved fun and fishing, after their brave service," Schrepfer adds. "At the end of the day, if my Air Sports Watch can increase recovery time, improve flexibility and add something to their fishing experience, I’ll be extremely proud."
ABA consists of 12 pro staff anglers and 100-plus coalition pro staff anglers from all branches of service, all of whom are active duty or retired U.S. military. The organization fishes Bass Champs on the World Fishing Network, Big Bass Battle on Versus, World Fishing Network and Time Warner. Numerous grassroots and charity events have gained ABA national prominence as the Ceremonial Launch Boats for the past two Bassmasters Classics, and now for a third consecutive year at the 2011 Bassmaster Classic. ArmyBassAnglers does all this while raising national awareness for Returning Heroes Home, Heroes on the Water and Veteran Outdoors.
The non-profit Warrior and Family Support Center, supported by ABA, is a 12,000-square foot rehabilitation center, funded solely by private donations. It provides space for wounded soldiers undergoing treatment in San Antonio, and allows them to spend private time with their friends and families when not actively participating in rehabilitative treatment.
"We are extremely excited about Air Sports Watch joining forces with our organization," stated President Cody Roberson. "We are continually seeking one-of-a-kind companies to support our mission, and ASW fits that mold perfectly with its lightweight, ionic sports watch. If you know anything about soldiers, you know that tough is not a character trait; it is a requirement, and we are proud to join forces with a company and product as tough as the Air Sports Watch. We look forward to a long-term relationship with Air Sports Watch, and putting this incredible product into the hands of America’s finest. HOOAH."
