Henry Repeating Arms President Andy Wickstrom presented a $50,000 check—in memory of those who sacrificed their lives in service to the country—to The American Legion at the organization’s national convention on Sept. 6 in Milwaukee, Wis. The funds will help support America’s military veterans and their families.

The presentation was part of Henry Repeating Arms’ $1 Million Silver Anniversary pledge that it made as part of its 25th anniversary celebration. Wickstrom also gave American Legion National Commander Paul E. Dillard (seen above, left and right, respectively) an engraved Henry Military Services Tribute Edition rifle in appreciation for his more than 50 years of membership and leadership with the organization.

“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 the convention’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.”

Henry Repeating Arms CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato made a milestone $1,000,000 pledge in 2022 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, the company will be offering a limited-edition Golden Boy Silver Anniversary Edition rifle with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the organizations and charities supported by the Guns For Great Causes campaign.

The American Legion was chartered by Congress in 1919 and is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization. It currently has more than two million members.
