Firearm, ammunition and accessory makers throughout the country have long supported the efforts to salute American servicemen and women. I’ve heard a lot of complaints about the Kimber Solo not functioning properly. As a gunwriter, a curious person and a fan of Kimber, I decided to find out if the fussing was accurate.Programs of all sizes and purposes have risen up to help touch the lives of those who protect so many.

It's not possible to recognize every single one of these programs in a single article, but here's a chance for you to help. If you know of any company, civic group, church, family or other entity that has worked to support both active military and veterans alike, please share.

Leave your contribution in the section below and we'll archive the stories, notes and photos received as a tribute to those who have sacrificed to safeguard our freedom.
