These include the man who shot Osama Bin Laden, former Navy SEAL Robert J. O’Neill, as well as Mark Dambrosio, Nick Johnson, and Nina Rogers.
While Robert J. O’Neill is best known as the man who fired the shots that killed Osama bin Laden, he is much, much more than that. One of our most highly decorated combat veterans, O’Neill served on SEAL Team Two, SEAL Team Four, and eight years on the legendary SEAL Team Six. He has taken part in and led over 400 combat missions worldwide and has been decorated 53 times. including two Silver Stars for gallantry in action against the enemy, and four Bronze Stars with Valor to denote heroism against the enemy. Rob took part in the rescue for Operation Red Wings, which extracted the Lone Survivor, Marcus Luttrell and he was a Team Leader for Operation Neptune’s Spear, the mission to kill Osama bin Laden. He is the author of the NY Times and London Times best-selling memoir “THE OPERATOR: Firing the Shots that Killed Osama bin Laden,” and “My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior.” O’Neill will be in the WATCHTOWER booth Tuesday, January 23 from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM. He will be speaking, signing books (if you bring one), and taking photos.
Mark Dambrosio, a 37-year-old avid outdoorsman, joined the Marine Corps at 22 and spent nearly 10 years conducting operations for the recon and sniper communities. From 2012-2016, he was the chief instructor for the Marine Corps Mountain Scout Sniper and Mountain Survival courses. Today, he is a Professional Precision Shooting Backcountry Instructor & Wine
Entrepreneur. In 2017, Mark started International Mountain Survival, where he teaches individuals and groups how to shoot, hunt, and survive — think military special operations mixed with expert backcountry instruction. In addition, in 2021, Mark started his own winery in Washington state called The Woodsman Selection. With each interactive wine bottle, he hopes to encourage people to get outdoors and try their hand at archery, hunting, survival, and fishing. When Mark isn’t working, he can be found spending his free time with his 5-year-old son Max. Mark will be in the WATCHTOWER booth for the duration of the show.
Nick “Pew View” Johnson grew up on a farm in northern Iowa, where he learned how to become an efficient shooter and hunter. He got his first .22 revolver and 16-gauge shotgun at age 8. At age 14, he won his first skeet shooting competition. At age 15, Nick started doing trick shooting. In 2018 Nick started recording his unorthodox way of shooting and posting it on social media, reaching over one million followers on TikTok. Today, Nick supports his family and employs others by doing what he loves — shooting and testing firearms, winning competitions, recording TV shows and firearms-related commercials, and keeping the American people entertained and well informed. Johnson will be in the booth on Thursday, January 25, from 11:00 AM until noon. He will also be doing range time with some lucky shooters. Tickets for the range shoot will be given out at the booth Tuesday, and Wednesday. Ten lucky winners will be drawn on Thursday during his talk. One of the 10 shooters will walk home with the new WATCHTOWER Apache double stack 1911 handgun.
Nina Rogers has been passionate about the great outdoors since she was a young girl growing up in East Tennessee. She learned gun safety, marksmanship, and fieldcraft very young, which she believes has enabled her to build a strong and successful career in the outdoors. Nina is renowned for her expertise in the hunting and fishing industry, mentoring fellow outdoors enthusiasts and educating younger generations on the importance of conservation. When asked about her outdoor lifestyle, she often states, “I take pride in the fact that I’m teaching safety and responsibility to the next generation.” With her commitment to gun safety, proper firearms handling, and stewardship of the environment, Nina Rogers truly embodies the spirit of the outdoors. Rogers will be in the booth all day Wednesday, January 24th, with a range time to be announced.
