M1 for Vets Project (photos included)


The M1 for Vets Project is a grass-roots program aimed at thanking our wounded soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines, and Coast Guardsmen for their service and sacrifice in the Global War on Terror. Rifles are presented to veterans who wish to pursue the shooting sports or collecting as part of their rehabilitation.

This September Tucson Rifle ClubÂ’s monthly John C Garand Match was the venue for the presentation of an M1 Garand rifle to Robert Bartlett of Scottsdale, AZ.

Robert gave up a successful civilian career to enlist in the US Army after September 11th. Trained as a sniper, he deployed to Iraq and was severely wounded in the fighting there. Robert came to the attention of the M1 for Vets Project while he was undergoing treatment for his wounds at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
