Went out and shot my first USPSA match today, had a great time and made some new friends in the process. As a Team Captain (Team 102) I genuinely feel a renewed sense of purpose thanks to Veterans 3 Gun, simply because I get to impact new lives that I likely never would’ve had the chance of meeting, had it not been for this organization. The ability to network with other vets, and go out and compete, and hopefully keep fellow veterans from making a choice that would hurt them and their loved ones, creates a bit of passion that I haven’t felt in a long time. It’s almost like training a fresh squad to get ready for a deployment, and developing those bonds is unlike anything else, it kind of makes me feel at home in ways that civilian life never could. Thank you Paul van Oudheusden, this organization his genuinely changed my life, and I both hope and know that it will continue to change many others’ lives as well.
