Geoff and Brandi Bell at the Harvest Festival Military & Veterans Life Member Stories: Geoff Bell, Army Vet, Helps Save Lives After Mandalay Bay Shooting in Las Vegas “We were in the VIP section on the right side of the stage. I wasn’t concerned at first because the shots sounded really high-pitched, like a Black Cat firework, not like a gun at all,” Geoff remembers. “But then the guy beside us got shot and I knew that something was going on.
