‘Band Of Brothers’ Hero Al Mampre To Appear At 2014 Shot Show

Plano, IL –-(Ammoland.com)- Shooting, hunting and outdoor industry representatives from around the world will travel to Las Vegas next week for the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s 2014 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show.

More than 1,600 exhibitors will showcase new products to thousands of buyers at the Sands Expo Center, while some 2,000 members of the outdoor media will cover four solid days of storylines for their readers, viewers and listeners.

One of these storylines, arguably the best in the building, is American Patriot, Al Mampre – one of the few surviving heroes who fought for our country’s freedoms and those of our allies on the frontlines of World War II.

Mampre, 91, is one of 19 living members of the original “Band of Brothers” – a legendary WWII company of the 101st Airborne whose heroic stories have been well documented in Stephen E. Ambrose’s New York Times Best Seller, Band of Brothers; the HBO miniseries of the same name; and in multiple published articles.

Mampre was 20-years-old when he joined the Army and became a medic in the storied Company E, 506th Regiment of the 101st Airborne. Mampre earned two Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star during his service, fighting bravely with his brothers in Operation Market Garden, the Battle of the Bulge, and other conflicts throughout the European theater.

Plano Molding – the first name in secure storage solutions for shooting, hunting, fishing and other outdoor gear – and Tenzing Outdoors — the industry leader in technically-evolved hunting packs – are proud to welcome 2014 SHOT Show visitors to meet Al Mampre between 2:00 and 4:00 pm in the Plano Tactical booth (#10570) on Thursday, January 16, and after 10:00 am in the Plano / Tenzing booth (#14829) on Wednesday, January 15.

This is a rare opportunity to meet an even rarer American patriot. So stop by, bring your questions, your notepads, and a handshake or salute for a man who fought, suffered and prevailed for each of us.
