Fairfax, Virginia – Earlier this month, a group of recovering veterans from Fort Belvoir Military Hospital were welcomed to a day at the National Rifle Association.

Organized by NRA Range Customer Service Specialist Debbie Crews, the afternoon included a tour ofthe National Firearms Museum, a behind the scenes lunch, and a trip behind the firing line at the NRA Headquarters Range. A day away from their regular routines of rehab and respite to unwind behind a few of Samuel Colt and John Browning’s finest.

“I have been working with returning veterans at local military hospitals for the past two years,” said Crews. “Today the Range is honored to welcome a wonderful group of injured servicemen and women from Fort Belvoir Military Hospital by providing a fun day at the NRA.”

Said day of fun began with a tour of the National Firearms Museum. Guided by ever affable Senior Curator Doug Wicklund, the veterans received a one-of-a-kind inside look at the 3,000 guns on display.
