We Are Making A Difference!
« on: September 29, 2015, 02:37:04 PM »
 Received the following from a Shooter who attended a New York shoot with a friend who was shortly shipping out. He had enlisted in the US Navy.....................

"Just wanted to let you guys know that the young man Jon I bought to the April Appleseed has graduated from Navy basic training with flying colors (I never had a doubt).  He called me to brag and thank me for the opportunity to attend an Appleseed.
He earned the Navy marksmanship medal in basic and credits Appleseed for the fundamentals and myself for the time at the range to hone the skills".

Congrats to Jon and Thank You for your Service.  O0
