Helping wounded warriors upon their arrival back home
Fairfax, Virginia - Disabled soldiers from Project Enduring Pride stopped by NRA Headquarters earlier this year for a tour of the NRA National Firearms Museum and a trip to the Range. Apparently the group had a whale of a time because they're on their way back for more.
Led by Director Ken Strafer, Project Enduring Pride assists the men and women who were wounded in the service of our country with the sometimes difficult transition from military to civilian life. Started out of what we all remember as the Walter Reed Army Medical in Bethesda, Maryland, the group does it's best to help our wounded warriors in the Washington, Richmond and Baltimore metro centers.
"The event will start with lunch in the Café, followed by museum tours and shooting on the Range," explained Range Customer Service Specialist Debbie Crews. "I hope everyone is ready to provide an exciting day for these wonderful young men and women."
Firearms for the Enduring Pride shoot come from the personal collection of various members of NRA staff and volunteers. Ammunition, gift bags and other items have been donated by participating organizations including Brownells and the United States Border Patrol.
