Every single day these Warriors & Heroes join together to protect you from a broad spectrum of threats; seen and unseen, foreign & domestic and real & potential threats on our soil.

ALL ARE ESSENTIAL

ALL ARE REQUIRED TO PROTECT YOU 24 HRS A DAY

Warriors and Rodeo has three primary missions.

Operation Not on my Watch:
Day-to-day life after the experiences our members face can be extremely difficult. Warriors And Rodeo provides a safe place for its members to help each other by connecting with those in similar situations. We say our organization is at WAR - war against suicide,  PTSD, depression, loneliness, and more. We call ourselves a family and our mission is that none be left behind. 



Operation Armor:
WAR raises money to provide gear, via donations and sponsorship, to protect the WAR members in the rodeo/western lifestyle. Whether it be vests, chaps, helmets, boots, spurs, hats, ropes, shirts, pants, or other items - WAR wants to give back to those who will give it all.
Providing protective gear in the arena to those who wear real armor out of the arena to protect us.

Operation Not Forgotten:
We work with people and companies to provide ways for supporters, friends, and family to join Warriors And Rodeo in the above missions. This is done in many ways such as:
  • send a card, letter, child's artwork 
  • make a video sharing your gratefulness for their service
  • donate monetarily and or products to be given to those who have served

WAR Confidentiality and Volunteer Agreement

WAR DOES NOT SPONSOR ITS MEMBERS - although it can help and lead to it for members. As we receive donations we purchase gear for our members. This is dependent upon companies and supporters donations. Other WAR members give their used gear to other members, also. Heroes helping Heroes.

We try our best to help our members reach their highest potential in life, on the battlefield and in the arena.

WAR IS NOT A SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM. - We provide a network and opportunity for those who serve to have the friendships and encouragement they need but we are not professional counselors. We try to do what we can but there are times when people need to go to a professional. We encourage our members to receive counseling.

As of May 2017, Warriors and Rodeo was instrumental in preventing what could have been 11 suicides. We are humbled to have reached so many.

THE RULES/REGULATIONS/BYLAWS CAN BE UPDATED AT ANY TIME AND WILL APPLY TO ALL WHO ARE REGISTERED WITH WAR.

WAR was started in the fall of 2014 by Sheri Smith, Navy Veteran, and PBR Certified Sports Agent. She represents some amazing clients (www.smithprollc.com) but felt a need to help her fellow veterans in the industry. 

Sheri's vision expanded to help many front line warriors.  Slowly, she met more and more people who would soon join her team that became known as Warriors And Rodeo - WAR.  


With so many people wanting to be involved, the team that was originally under her agency and personal corporation, is now a 501C3. 




"What will WAR become?  
We have no answer.  
It will be what the members make it.  
There are no boundaries and no limitations."
Sheri Smith
