Congratulations to all of the VSSA shooters who participated in the national pistol matches.
VSSA Highpower Team Continues Winning Ways
The First Eastern Armed Forces Memorial Match was held Memorial Day Weekend and was hosted by the Quantico Shooting Club. On the trophies were the names of the service members and the winner of each match. All match entry fees were donated to the Remembering the Brave Foundation, which was founded by Stephen Beck. Steve was a Casualty Assistance Officer in the Marine Corps and is a high power shooter. This match was his idea as a way to remember our fallen heroes.
The 1000 yard team match was named in honor PO2 Marc A. Lee, the first SEAL to be killed in Iraq in 2006. He was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart posthumously. The winning team was the Virginia Shooting Sports Association. Congratulations to our High Power Team and we will be rooting for you as you compete at Camp Perry this month.
All of trophies won by the VSSA Team at the Eastern Armed Forces Memorial Match will be on display at the VSSA Annual Meeting on September 25th.
