In support of America’s military veterans, in memory of those who sacrificed their lives in service to the country, and as a portion of the company’s $1,000,000 Silver Anniversary pledge, President of Henry Repeating Arms Andy Wickstrom presented a $50,000 check to The American Legion at its national convention on Tuesday in Milwaukee, Wis.

American Legion National Commander Paul E. Dillard, who joined Wickstrom on stage, then received an engraved Henry Military Services Tribute Edition rifle in appreciation for his more than 50 years of membership and leadership with the organization.

Charted by Congress in 1919, The American Legion is America’s largest wartime veterans service organization, with over two million Legionnaires serving the motto, “Veterans Strengthening America.” By extending their service beyond their military enlistment, Legionnaires seek to improve the well-being of their fellow veterans, their families, their communities and the country through various services and programs including youth mentorship, homeless veteran assistance and quality-of-life improvements for wounded veterans.

“Henry Repeating Arms believes in The American Legion’s principles and mission of strengthening America by upholding American values, fostering patriotism, giving back, and we respect their many extraordinary accomplishments,” said Wickstrom during Tuesday’s General Session. “Thank you to all who have served, to those who are currently serving. We are forever indebted to you and the sacrifices you have made.”

Celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, Henry Repeating Arms’ CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato made a milestone $1,000,000 pledge to highlight the company’s charitable branch called Guns For Great CausesThe philanthropic program benefits individual families of sick children going through treatments, children’s hospitals, and non-profit organizations supporting military veterans, first responders, law enforcement, wildlife conservation, hunting and shooting sports education, and Second Amendment advocacy. In the coming weeks, Henry Repeating Arms is offering a limited-edition Golden Boy Silver Anniversary Edition rifle with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the organizations and charities supported by the Guns For Great Causes campaign.
