Steve Fielder and Chris Powell of the Houndsman XP Podcast are partnering with us to provide an outstanding outdoor adventure for a United States Marine Corps veteran and Gold Star Family member whose father, also a United States Marine, was killed in action during the Iraq War. Houndsman XP and Freedom Hunters are providing a fully guided, all expense paid Mountain Lion hunt with trained hounds on the Navajo Nation in North East Arizona with Rex Hounds. We are actively seeking patriotic and supportive individuals and companies who want to support these efforts with a tax-deductible donation.
Tanner Babb is a United States Marine Corps veteran who served from 2012-18. Tanner was honorably discharged from the Marine Corps in February 2018. The most honorable and amazing part of Tanner’s story is the fact that he was compelled and highly motivated to serve even after his father, Brock Babb, was killed during a patrol when his convoy was struck by an IED. Brock Babb served during the first gulf war, Operation Desert Storm. After his return home and being honorably discharged from the Marine Corps, the terrorist attacks of September 11, occurred. Brock Babb made the choice to once again rise up and serve his country and he reenlisted in the United States Marine Corps. He deployed to Iraq in 2006. During this deployment, Brock was killed in action on October 15, 2006 in Anbar. Back home, Brock was survived by his family, to include a teenage son named Tanner. Tanner Babb enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served in the same unit as his father. In spite of the tragic loss of his father Tanner volunteered to fight for America, even with a stark reality of the possible consequences. Tanner has willingly agreed to participate in this epic adventure not only for his service but in honor of his father, Brock
