Riton USA and country music artist Aaron Tippin have teamed up during Tippin’s “25 Years” tour to honor local law enforcement at selected tour stops.
Tippin will present local officers with a Riton USA product and honor their sacrifices whenever possible. Tippin has been a Riton USA pro-staff and worked with Riton’s Director of Strategic Development, Douglas Warren, for the past 15 years.
“Aaron approached us to work with him to show support for the local law enforcement in conjunction with his current tour.”
“We have worked together for the past 15 years volunteering to take our nation’s wounded soldiers on hunting and fishing programs as a rehabilitation need, so Aaron is no stranger to supporting our heroes,” said Douglas Warren of Riton USA.
On June 22, 2017, prior to Tippin’s performance in Mountain Home, Arkansas at their annual Red, White and Blue festival, Tippin and Riton and Warren presented Riton USA scopes to Chief Carry Manuel of Mountain Home, Chief David Hotchkiss of Lakeview, Arkansas and Sheriff John Montgomery of Baxter county Sheriff’s Department. The Mod 3, 1-4x24IR’s were not presented as display pieces, but ready for mounting on a duty weapon and put to use.
The Aaron Tippin “25 Years” tour goes through January 2018. “Every effort will be made to make as many presentations as possible during the tour to our officers in blue for all that they sacrifice for all of us,” continued Warren. Learn more about the tour at aarontippin.com/tour.
Since the first presentation, country music artists Rick Monroe and Irene Mandrell have reached out in support and offered to help expand the project.
