M1s for Vets

I received this information from the Civilian Marksmanship Program.
Thought I’d share it with the rest of you.

Linden Sportsmen Club in Linden, Michigan, will hold a John C. Ga­rand Match M1s for Vets Fundraiser on Saturday, 12 May..  The entry fee is $25.00, including lunch.  Awards will be given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place based on total scores. Competitors using other service rifles are welcome to shoot, but they will not be eligible for awards.  John O’Shea of the Lake Norman Highpower Club near Huntersville, North Carolina started M1s for Vets.  The program began in November 2005 with a single rifle being presented to a wounded Marine veteran of the Global War on Terror. Since then this program has given, as a small token of ap­preciation for their sacrifice, examples “of the greatest battle implement ever devised” to 80 wounded veterans. To help fund this endeavor, $20.00 from each competitor’s match fee and all profits from ammunition sales at the match goes to M1s for Vets.  Donations of money and spare parts for M1s will also gladly be accepted.  To view the match program, visit or contact John Johannes at for more information.
