"We are very excited that the NRA Foundation is making an investment in our community through their support of our youth marksmanship program," said retired Lt. Col. David Farlow, Senior Army Instructor for MHS JROTC. “Every year we teach nearly 100 cadets how to properly handle and safely operate an air rifle. Then they learn the joy that competitive marksmanship can bring.”
