At the 145th NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits in Louisville, Ky., American Rifleman will host four special presentations, including one in honor of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor—”a day which will live in infamy”—Dec. 7, 1941.
The improvised Browning belt-fed, .30-’06 “Stinger” in the hands of U.S. Marines played a part in one of the epic battles of World War II: Iwo Jima.
The Battle of Omaha Beach was not one battle, but six separate battles fought independent from one another.
Last week, American Rifleman TV began an eight part series on Americans in World War I titled “Over There!“
NRA Life member Sidney C. Phillips, Jr., joined the U.S. Marine Corps on December 8, 1941, and he saw fierce combat action in the Pacifi c, including Guadalcanal, Cape Gloucester and Pavuvu. He has shared his experiences on the PBS documentary “The War” and has been featured in HBO’s “The Pacific.” Now retired, Dr. Phillips is a humble hero and an example to us all.
Attendees of the 142nd NRA Annual Meetings & Exhibits are invited to join American Rifleman editors and other special guests for a pair of Special Sessions.
Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester is the first female Soldier who served in Operation Iraqi Freedom to receive the Silver Star.
