A quick reminder of my previous message -- Veterans Day is fast approaching.
As you know, we will be having a short ceremony at the Post as we always do.
We need seven volunteers (plus one back-up if possible) to be the riflemen who will perform the 21-gun salute at the ceremony.
Four folks have signed up so far – Thanks, guys.
We need at least three, but preferably four more (allows one for a back-up) to sign up ASAP.
I will be the rifle squad commander and would like to have at least one practice session with all attending—two if we feel we need another, or if not all the volunteers can make a single date.
Please contact me ASAP (preferably via e-mail) if you can participate and let me know which days/dates/times are best for you for a practice.
I’ll do the best I can to get everyone together so we can all know and practice the (in-place) movements and firing sequence.
If necessary, I’ll go over it individually with a few if we can’t all get together on a single mutually agreeable date. This isn’t the best way to do it, but will do if necessary.
Thanks very much and hope to hear from you soon.
Vice Commander (Rifle Squad Commander)
