As an avid young angler, Johnny Morris founded Bass Pro Shops in 1972 on 8 square feet of space in the back of his father's liquor store in Springfield, Missouri. Today, Bass Pro Shops and the founder haveearned a reputation as "the Walt Disney of the Outdoors" as a noted conservationist on a mission to connect everyone with nature.
Bass Pro Shops has a strong affinity for the armed forces and their families, a value that starts with our visionary founder Johnny Morris. His lifelong respect and gratitude to servicemen and women was strongly shaped by his father, John A. Morris, a decorated World War II veteran who proudly served his country in the Battle of the Bulge. There is no adequate way to properly thank our military and veterans, but we strive to honor their sacrifices and celebrate their heroism every day.
