Warriors Never Give Up’s (WNGU) mission is the inspiration behind the creation of the Warriors Arrow. The creation took place in the basement of Hunts End Outdoors Archery shop this winter following a conversation between Dustin Sperlich and Brett Bastian. Dustin is a combat veteran, Pastor, avid outdoorsman, and the owner of Hunts End Outdoors and Brett is a veteran, avid outdoorsman, and a co-founder of WNGU. The two share a common bond for the outdoors, bow hunting, and both feel that the outdoors holds a natural affinity for healing. “When Brett told me about Warriors Never Give Up, I immediately thought, ‘How can I get involved?’ which stirred the idea of the Warriors Arrow”.
Dustin understands first hand the sacrifices that our nation’s heroes make and have made as he proudly served in 2007-2008 during Operation Iraqi freedom with the South Dakota Army National Guard. Dustin and Brett’s objective for this awesome fundraising project was simple— to inspire every bow hunter across the nation to carry the Warriors arrow in their quiver as a reminder of the blood shed by the men and women warriors who have fought for our freedom. The arrow also represents the ultimate warrior, Jesus Christ, and his ultimate sacrifice for our salvation, hope, forgiveness, and eternity.
An amazing adventure of faith, hope, renewal, change, and healing awaits all involved.
Brett Bastian, Co-founder
