Anthony I thought you might like an up date on how your we have been using the HENRY Rifles. These photos are of a day we spent at the Bellingham, Ma. Police Range. We had around 25 wheelchair vets men and women.
In the first picture Range officer Sgt. Rich Perry is working with the vets. This lady went to the National Wheelchair games for veterans and came back with a GOLD Medal! One vet asked if he could shoot from a further distance he… is a WWII vet 90 years old he surprised the range officers with his request.
By the way if you notice I put scopes on your rifles to help the vets and boy were your rifles a big hit they must have fired over 3,000 rounds and did not want to stop but the bus had to get back to the Brockton VA Hospital.
The groups that were involved were the VFW, DAV and VVA.
This was the second half of the event we put on each year, we took around 50 wheelchair vets to a private lake to fish, boat, eat, and have fun. This year a friend came by to spend time with the vets Mr. Harry Synden President and former general manager of the Boston Bruins. My Co-Chair Denis Auger owns the house on the lake and we have been having this event at for the past four years and the second for the firing range.
Again I want to thank you for what you have done for the Veterans the HENRY Rifle is putting a lot of smiles on our hospitalized vets.
