VFW Honor Guard receives new rifle cases from NFOA members

This past month, the NFOA (Nebraska Firearms Owners Association) presented local Lincoln area Honor Guard with brand spanking new Rifle Cases.

A member stumbled across an ad on Craigslist of an Honor Guard in need of rifle cases as theirs were in disrepair and as the units run on donations, money is tight. A couple phone calls to Larry and a we posted a simple thread on the NFOA forums. It was decided rather than gather up our unused cases, we would Honor their service with brand new reproduction WWII Garand cases. Donations poured in from members and in no time we had 7 cases on their way.

We met up with the unit at the Veteran’s Memorial Garden (Located in Lincoln’s Antelope Park – If you have never been, be sure to put it on the short list) after a long day at the State Capital.

We can not thank these fellas enough for their service to our nation and for the freedoms we too often take for granted.

From the members of the NFOA – THANK YOU!
