Henry Repeating Arms HONORS DISTINGUISHED VETERANS
AT THE NRA 2017 ANNUAL MEETINGS

ATLANTA, GA – Henry Repeating Arms presented four distinguished Veterans with American-made Henry Military Service Tribute Rifles to thank them for their service to our country.

The presentation took place at The Friends of the NRA Foundation Banquet during The NRA’s 2017 Annual Meetings & Exhibits at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

As a sponsor of the event, Anthony Imperato, President of Henry Repeating Arms, invited the heroes on to the stage to thank them for going above and beyond the call of duty.

The first recipient was Linda Becker who retired from the US Air Force/Air National Guard after 39 years of service that included three overseas tours: Kuwait; Oman; Qatar. Next was Don Jenkins, a former United States Army soldier and Medal of Honor recipient for his actions in the Vietnam War. Then followed by Ty Carter, a former United States Army Staff Sergeant and Medal of Honor recipient for his actions at the 2009 Battle of Kamdesh in Afghanistan.

The final recognition went to 97-year old WWII Veteran George J. Krakosky. “How many of you remember the movie Saving Private Ryan and those vivid images of American soldiers landing on the beaches of France under tremendous enemy fire? For us it was a movie and for our recipient it was reality,” Imperato told the crowd.

“This man served and fought in a war that saved the world from unspeakable evil. He is one of the last of America’s greatest generation and we owe our freedom to him today,” Imperato said, voice cracking.

The crowd of 1800 people rose to give multiple standing ovations during the presentation. “Thank You for your service to our country, God Bless You and God Bless the United States of America,” Imperato concluded as the crowd rose to applaud the honorees one last time.

  1. Hey, Gov, if you’re out there – you were right about Henry not being the same company today as it was back in the “old west”, just a new company with an auspicious name.
    That said – good work on Imperato’s part. This is a company any American can get behind. I sure as hell hope no one digs intotheir finances and finds contributions made to progressive dems – I don’t want to know if they did…

  2. Henry knows how to make loyal customers while operating behind enemy lines (New Jersey).

    I wonder if anyone from Springfield was in the audience. They could learn a thing or two.

  3. Right nice, for Henry to honor these fine Veterans. I own a Henry and it’s mighty fine !! I own an Indian Chief, and that’s mighty fine !! Guess what ?? There’s no stickers on either saying “made in china” :-))

    Kudos to HENRY !!
