Longmeadow, MA. – Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) announces the addition of XS Sight Systems to its Sustaining Sponsor group of nine companies that form the core of support for HAVA — the shooting sports industry’s initiative to support recovering injured veterans and active duty military trying to rebuild their lives and confidence for the future. XS Sight Systems, based in Fort Worth, Texas is a leading maker of firearm sights for personal defense and law enforcement, with unique capabilities in rapid target acquisition. A leading OEM supplier to many gun manufacturers, XS also sells through shooting sports retailers with a strong line of aftermarket systems.
“The HAVA mission is one that we fully endorse,” said Jon Pastusek, XS President. “Our late founder became involved with the HAVA group about 5 years ago, and we have seen it blossom into a strong force for fostering awareness of wounded warrior issues and in creating hunting and shooting opportunities for these American heroes and their families who have given so much to protect freedom. We could not find a more deserving cause to support in his memory, because he believed so strongly in HAVA from the very beginning.”
“Our HAVA mission includes the families of these deserving warriors, and XS Sight Systems personnel have been on the forefront of developing programs for dependant spouses and kids at the flagship HAVA outdoor event, called HAVA National Family Day, held in San Antonio each Fall,” said Tom Taylor, HAVA Chairman. “Their enthusiasm and dedication to the entire family has led us to broaden our programs and we look forward to continuing progress to serve both the veteran and the dependants of these honored Americans who have all sacrificed in their own way. Now, with additional support from XS, we can continue to broaden our program and take our message of total-family support to more venues.”
