M-1s For Vets
We'd like to thank those who donated to help the injured vets shoot at the 2007 National Matches. Here are some photos from the firing line.

|This competitor is shooting the slow fire prone phase. Don't be fooled by the photograph, those targets are 200 yards away!|

|The Friends of Camp Perry is continuing to solicit donations from American Legion, VFW and AmVets posts, as well as individuals and clubs to help sponsor a disabled/injured veteran to come and be able to shoot at the Springfield and Garand Matches at Camp Perry. The M-1s for Vets program provides rifles and assistance for those vets who would still like to shoot in a competitive environment but lack the ability to shoot on their own. 16 injured vets attended the 2007 National Matches this year and had a fabulous time. Sponsorship covers housing, entry fees and meals. Sponsorship for one veteran is $500. If you could solicit your posts or shooting clubs for donations of $50 to $100 to help sponsor a veteran, we would greatly appreciate it, but any donations would be accepted.
