GRINNELL, Iowa (April 21, 2017) – Brownells proudly supports American patriots who wear uniforms of all types – sometimes even those who wear a package delivery uniform.
When footage of Matt Uhrin, an Iowa City-area package delivery man, appeared on national media showing him bravely saving an American flag from being burned by a group of protestors, Brownells knew they had to thank their fellow Iowan.
An NRA member and U.S. Army combat veteran, Mr. Uhrin, also known as the “FedEx Guy” will attend several events with the Brownells team at the upcoming 146th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Atlanta, GA.
These events include the open-to-the-public Brownells Social Media Meetup taking place in the Omni Hotel South Tower Lobby on Friday, April 28, at 6:30 PM. In addition to Mr. Uhrin’s presence, Brownells will host Eric & Chad from IraqVet8888, Mr. Guns ‘N Gear, LeaSpeed6, Janna Reeves, RapidFire Rachel and other industry social media personalities.
Mr. Uhrin will also be honored during a special presentation in the Brownells booth (#1713) at 1:45 PM (EDT) on Saturday, April 29.
“I am extremely excited and honored to be given this opportunity to go to 146th NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits with the great people from Brownells,” said Uhrin. “It is extremely humbling to be given an opportunity like this.”
“It’s a privilege to honor Matt at this year’s NRA Annual Meeting and Exhibits,” added Pete Brownell, CEO of Brownells. “This annual gathering is not only a celebration of our Second Amendment and the freedoms we enjoy as Americans, it’s also a place to acknowledge real people who do the right thing. I can’t think of a better place to thank Matt for his service to our country and the heroism he displayed while protecting our Nation’s flag and all it stands for.”
