Yesterday before the start of our black powder cartridge sihouette match we recognized a Korean war veteran who who is the range officer for the matches. He had been wounded in Korea and whisked home and never received medals he earned. A retired major in our group learned of this and went to work obtaining the missing medals. This was all done on the QT and was quite a surprise for the veteran. I started by blowing "attention" on a trumpet then the major, in uniform shirt (the rest doesn't fit), pinned a Korean campaign medal, purple heart, combat infantrymans medal, and presidential unit citation on his shirt to the applause of all present. It felt great to be part of recognizing one of our heroes.

That sounds like a really good time and honorable time at the range.
