In June, the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) received a donation from the Garand Collectors Association to use toward programs and facilities. In total, $30,000 is earmarked for CMP Scholarships, an annual initiative for graduating marksmanship athletes, and the balance for the CMP’s 500-acre outdoor Talladega Marksmanship Park in Alabama.
The Garand Collectors Association (GCA) presented the donation check to the CMP during the annual D-Day Matches at Talladega.
Additionally, Dupage Trading Company donated to CMP programs, while GLOCK, Inc., remains a top tier sponsor of Talladega Marksmanship Park.
Thank you to all our generous supporters and sponsors for helping to advance CMP initiatives throughout the year!
