In support of America’s military veterans and in memory of those who sacrificed their lives in service to the country, on Tuesday, August 30 Henry Repeating Arms President, Andy Wickstrom, presented a $50,000 check to The American Legion at the national convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. American Legion National Commander Paul E. Dillard, joining Wickstrom on stage, also received an engraved Henry Military Services Tribute Edition rifle in appreciation for more than 50 years of membership and leadership with the organization.

The $50,000 donation to the American Legion is a portion of the company’s $1,000,000 Silver Anniversary pledge to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Henry Repeating Arms.

Henry Repeating Arms’ CEO and Founder Anthony Imperato made this generous pledge to highlight the company’s charitable branch called Guns For Great Causes. The 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 education, shooting sports education and Second Amendment advocacy.

Charted by Congress in 1919, the American Legion is America’s largest wartime veterans service organization, with more than two million Legionnaires serving the motto, “Veterans Strengthening America.” By extending their service beyond their military enlistment, Legionnaires seek to improve the well-being of their fellow veterans, their families, their communities and the country through various services and programs including youth mentorship, homeless veteran assistance and quality-of-life improvements for wounded veterans.

“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. “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.”

In the future, Henry Repeating Arms will offer a limited-edition Golden Boy Silver Anniversary Edition rifle, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the organizations and charities supported by the Guns For Great Causes campaign.
