Default Wounded Warrior M1 Garand Clinic on August 21, 2010 – Fort Knox, Ky.

The Kentucky State Rifle and Pistol Association and the Meade County Sportsman’s Club in conjunction with the Fort Knox Warrior Transition Battalion will host a Wounded Warrior M1 Garand Clinic. This event will be held at the Scott Mountain Range at Fort Knox on Saturday, August 21, 2010.
With a capacity of up to 50 Soldiers, this clinic will instruct the Soldiers on the techniques and skills required to shoot what has been referred to as the “greatest battle implement in the world,” the M1 Garand. This event, while offering serious marksmanship training, is set up to be an enjoyable activity as well.
A mission statement from Major John C. Davis, S2 of the Warriors Transition battalion states: “Elevating the abilities of wounded, ill and injured Warriors through marksmanship training and competition is an important component of recovery and an integral part of being a Soldier while building camaraderie, confidence and raising awareness for adaptive sports.”
Staffed with volunteers from Kentucky’s High Power Target shooting competitors, all live-fire training will be coached by Civilian Marksmanship Program Certified M1 Garand Instructors or Army Marksmanship Unit Squad Designated Marksman Instructors. M1 rifles and ammunition will furnished by the Kentucky State Rifle & Pistol Association, and all targets and supplies will be provided by the Meade County Sportsman’s Club.
The clinic will conclude with an actual match with the appropriate CMP medals being awarded and official certificates from the CMP for clinic participation. Also, these Soldiers will be given information on how to purchase their own M1 Garand directly from the CMP.
Please contact Mr. Mark Mann, 502-550-4755, for more information.
