Default 100 years of SAFS! We should celebrate it!

Dear CMP
I have recently read the book "Sniping in the Trenches" by Major John L. Plaster, USA(RET.). In the book, the devotes several pages to the founding,
training, Staff & students of the Small Arms Firing School at Camp Perry, Ohio in 1918!

I think the CMP should celebrate this 100 year anniversary with the 2018 SAFS!
Even if you "only" put some of this great history in a handout at the schools,
and a 100 year anniversary SAFS t-shirt!

I nominate the first Commandant of SAFS- Colonel Morton C. Mumma, and/or instructor Capt. Herbert W. McBride (author of "A Rifleman went to War", one of my personal Hero's.) picture for a AWESOME SAFS t-shirt!

100 years of SAFS...that's a LOT of people trained. We should all be proud of that.

Thank you.
