STAG ARMS helps raise money for troops.

STAG ARMS, partnering with Move America Forward (MAF), announces the winner of a rifle giveaway that promoted Troopathon 7, a star-studded effort to send care packages to U.S. troops in Afghanistan. In all, the fundraiser netted $301,626 to support the troops.

Wayne Dupree, an Air Force veteran, won the STAG ARMS-donated AR-15-style rifle, which is valued at over $900.

"I was in the military for 8 years and I know firsthand what a care package will do, especially in times when you are lonely or homesick. It is a great honor to help (our troops) and to win this rifle," Dupree said.

"STAG ARMS has always supported our troops, not only through direct discounts on our rifles, but also in assisting with service- and veteran-related charities and holding our own fundraisers. We are proud to have raised so much money to send care packages to the soldiers who are away from their homes and families for months or years at a time," said David Larson, STAG ARMS marketing manager.
