Small Business Honors the Men and Women of the U.S. Military

Gainesville, Texas — Pond King, Inc, a small manufacturing company just outside of Gainesville, Texas, is continuing their tradition of honoring the men and women of the U.S. military by giving away a Patriot Pontoon Boat – a two-man fishing pontoon boat – in a random drawing.


Inspired by an order placed as a gift for a WWII Navy Veteran, Pond King launched Patriots for Patriots in 2019. Since then, Pond King has continued with this annual random drawing in which anyone can nominate an active-duty serviceman or woman or veteran of the U.S. Military to win a Patriot two-man fishing pontoon boat, plus an Intestate Battery and fishing gear from several of our partners.


Submissions can be made at between now and November 10, 2021 and the winner will be drawn on Veterans Day, November 11.


“We are grateful to the men and woman who have served our country and are pleased to be able to give something back,” said Owner and Founder, Brad Metzler. “And, we want to thank our partners who are helping out by donating the fishing gear and a Intestate Battery; Abu Garcia, 13 Fishing, Berkley Fishing, Rapala and Interstate Battery of Texoma.”


Pond King, Inc. is a small company just outside of Gainesville, Texas, that specializes in designing and manufacturing products that help people get more from their “down at the pond” experiences, including mini and small pontoon boats, floating docks and artificial fish habitat.
