Veterans Day "M1 for Vets" Fund Raiser -- November 21, 2010


"M1 for Vets" Purpose:

Transitioning combat wounded veterans for the purpose of competing in national shooting sports.  "M1 For Vets" is a non-profit organization dedicated to financial and logistical support of returning Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and the Global War on Terror veterans.


"M1 for Vets" Goal:

To give transitioning combat wounded veterans an opportunity to get back on the rifle range to participate in shooting competition. "M1 for Vets" will make logistical arrangements and work with them to make the adjustments that are necessary to achieve a stable firing position. These are tough young men and women who quickly adapt and are able to overcome difficulties.


"M1 for Vets" Process:

All nominations are processed through fellow brothers in arms. Upon being nominated by a potential transitioning combat wounded veteran representative "M1 for Vets" refurbishes an M1 or other suitable rifle for donation and the scheduling process begins. The presentation location is selected (usually at a local range that is having a shooting competition) and the arrangements required to logistically support and get the recipient to that location are set in motion.
