Jack Jaeger – Territory Manager NE – 6/2011

Hundreds of people showed up to pull an M-42 combat tank (80,000 pounds) for the second annual Knights of Columbus Tank Pull fundraiser. Teams, including policemen, firefighters, Veterans groups, colleges and even the New Jersey Housewives raised money by successfully pulling the tank. Along with the main event there were games and rides for the children, a dunk tank for amusement, bands and food. Guest of honor was Adam Poppenhouse, who is an Iraqi War vet who lost both legs to an IED explosion. The fundraiser supports the Wounded Warrior Project. Over 25 teams vied for the honor and bragging rights in three categories.; Fastest Pull, Lightest Weight Pull, and the most important, Best Team Fundraiser. All teams of 20 needed to raise a minimum of $1500 to participate and try to raise as much as possible for these men and women who protect our freedom.  The one day event raised about $75,000 for Wounded Warriors like Adam.
