Honored American Vets Afield Hosts Vets at Talladega



Honored American Veterans Afield (HAVA) and The Independence Fund (TIF) conducted a joint event to host nine Army and Marine Corps veterans for two days of pistol training and shooting a steel challenge match. The event was held at the CMP (Civilian Marksmanship Program) Talladega Marksmanship Park in Talladega, AL. The park is 500 acres of world-class shooting facilities in all disciplines.

“The HAVA and TIF Team worked hard to put on a big-time match for these warriors,” said Chris Fleming, HAVA Events Manager. “I find the shooting community a great place to find comradery and friendship that mimics my experience in the Marine Corps. We trained, played, ate well, and had an amazing prize table for our honored guests provided by many great sponsors, all of whom stepped up to offer a truly first-class event. The smiles and friendships created will last a lifetime.”

“HAVA and TIF are both charitable organizations focused on assisting veterans and their families. It’s so easy for these two organizations to join forces for this event and others, as both share the same goal – to help veterans, period” said Tom Taylor, HAVA, Executive Director and Chairman of the Board.

In addition to the match, the CMP Talladega Marksmanship Park offered event participants a special opportunity to shoot a side match with a classic rifle that contributed significantly to increasing Army and Marine Corps combat capabilities in World War II…the M1 Garand. General George Patton called the M1 Garand “the greatest battle implement ever devised” and shooting the M1 may have provided these Soldiers and Marines a connection to that past.

Army veteran Bedalina Rosario expressed her gratitude for HAVA and TIF’s joint team effort, “Words can’t express the gratitude and appreciation I experienced this weekend. I simply want to say thank you!”
