STEPHENVILLE, Texas — One of the best things about living in a small town like Stephenville is neighbors help each other when they need help. They provide a strong, heartfelt hand up and not a weak, shallow hand out. In late winter of 2018, one of our neighbors Justin Monk, began experiencing devastating headaches which led him on a journey to his doctors discovering multiple, cancerous brain and spinal tumors. Since learning of his situation, the community of Stephenville has rallied around Justin and his family with lots of love, prayers, and support. Justin is a 2001 Stephenville High School graduate where he played Yellow Jacket football and also proudly served his country as a United States Marine. He and his wife Monica have four precious children and call the #CowboyCapital home. Looking over social media posts about Justin it is extremely obvious he is a much loved husband, father, friend, and faithful Christian brother with a tougher than they, never give up spirit. Currently, Justin is undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments for the most important battle he has ever faced — his life.

The Cowboy Capital Pro Rodeo Association proudly stands with our Stephenville community and the Monk family as he fights his battle with cancer. The CCPRA announces Justin Monk as our American Patriot recipient and humbly presented him a signed card with an enclosed check for $11,000.

The American Patriot Program, formerly known as the American Hero Program, began in 2015 as a way for the CCPRA to honor a local veteran who exhibited extreme financial need ranging from educational bills like student loans, essentials for daily living, or even outrageous medical bills. This program is the rodeo associations way of saying "thank you" for their service and dedication to our country by offering a potentially life changing monetary gift. Through a selection process involving family of the late Chris Kyle and the CCPRA, an American Patriot is selected and honored each year. Funds from the Sponsor Gala Live Auction in September as well as proceeds from the Friday night PRCA Rodeo Performance help make the check even bigger. New to 2018, Wrangler joined forces with the CCPRA and has faithfully pledged their financial support of the program for the next several years. The CCPRA is extremely honored to stand beside a proud American company such as Wrangler as they take notice of our local program and offer their encouraging aid. To date, the CCPRA has awarded $64,000 to our local American Patriots.

Wow, this is awesome! Love when a rodeo group or local ranchers get together to show support for a cause such as this!

WOW!! I had no idea! I knew y’all were a very ‘generous’ organization, but was not aware of the American Patriot 🇺🇸 program. I have always made every attempt to support this group. And after reading this, I will put forth even a greater effort. 💗
