Dinner followed, and as usual, everyone hung around in the restaurant parking lot afterwards because nobody wanted to leave. But it finally ended, and we raised a little over $500 for Soldiers' Angels, which will be donated in memory of Master Sergeant George A Bannar, Jr., formerly of Orange County, VA, who gave his life in Afghanistan last month.
Special thanks to Jerry at 340 Defense for getting us onto this range at short notice and to Chuck, who volunteered to spend the day as our RSO.
