BERETTA IS PROUD SPONSOR OF "GRATEFUL NATION", A NEW SERIES HONORING AMERICA'S SOLDIERS

ACCOKEEK, MD (October 1, 2009) -- Grateful Nation, a new series co-sponsored by Beretta and ATK Federal Premium Ammunition, and produced by Orion Multimedia premiers this Saturday morning on ESPN2.

Each week join actor and former Army Ranger Tim Abell as he introduces viewers to some of America's finest - soldiers who have been wounded in combat and whose love of hunting has helped them overcome the physical and emotional scars of war.

"This is a powerful and moving show" said Christopher Merritt, General Manager Beretta USA, "and Beretta is proud to support a program that honors our country's soldiers for their personal sacrifices and shows the powerful role hunting and nature play in their healing process."

Grateful Nation provides a unique and very personal glimpse into the sacrifices these men and women have endured as they share their experiences in distant lands while returning to visit a favorite hunting setting - the kind of place that sustained them from foxholes to hospital wards. These are stories about Americans you will never forget.

The season's opening show takes place in British Columbia, where Sgt First Class Greg Stube overcomes his disabilities while tracking and hunting a Shyrus Moose and a Mule Deer.

Grateful Nation will air each Saturday morning on ESPN2. Check your local listing for times.
