The Rifle – Book Signing and Talk by Andrew Biggio
August 1 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm$10 – $20
While helping his own generation of veterans for the last decade, Andrew saw the urgency to start honoring WWII veterans as they were vanishing at an alarming rate. He saw the need to link their methods of living a successful life after combat and pass it on to today’s veterans. This sparked a three year journey. Over two hundred veterans later, Andrew was fortunate to publish a written experience of the journey called “The Rifle.”
WHY A RIFLE?
At the average age of ninety-four, there was one instrument that brought these men and women back to WWII, the M1 Garand rifle. Being the standard issued rifle of that time, each veteran had their own memorable experience with the weapon. Just by grasping the rifle, it acts as time machine bringing them back some seventy-five years. The most magnificent stories would be shared through this rifle.
We are expecting over 40 WWII veterans to attend! Many of these gentlemen were featured in this book. This is a very rare chance to see so many veterans all in one setting. In addition, there will be 14 French Legion of Honor medals issued during the event.
