The Veterans Family of Brands (VFOB), a Forward Operating Base for Veterans, is an organization bringing together like mission-minded companies, and individuals with a passion for supporting US Military Veterans and their families!
The Veterans FOB was founded in early 2016, after a small group of companies decided to work together to do more than they could accomplish alone from product demonstrations, customer events, and ultimately exponentially grow Veterans Foundation support as a team. This vision quickly spawned interest from like minded companies with great brands who wanted to be part of the mission and as such the VFOB was born! Check out our mission, our family of companies, our VFOB dealers, and get info on memberships at www.veteransfob.com/.
The VFOB will be hosting a large scale exclusive event in conjunction with the 2017 SHOT show, on Sunday 15 Jan, and Monday 16 Jan at the Pro Gun Club, just south of the Las Vegas Strip at 12801 Old US 95 Hwy, Boulder City, NV 89005. With over 50 VFOB companies and over 50 non-VFOB vendors expected to be exhibiting, as well as some amazing industry heroes in attendance, this is a Do Not Miss event!
