Henry Repeating Arms honors veterans at Great American Outdoor Show

Harrisburg, PA

Henry Repeating Arms presented Military Service Golden Boy Tribute rifles to six veterans, from World War II to Afghanistan, at the NRA Foundation Banquet and Auction at the Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pa., on Feb. 12, 2015.
As lead sponsor of the event, Anthony Imperato, president of Henry Repeating Arms, chose to award local heroes of the community who’ve proven to go above and beyond the call of duty. “These men and their families sacrificed to protect this great country of ours, and we owe our freedom to them today,” Imperato said, choking back tears. “Thank you for your service to our country,” he continued as the crowd of 300 rose to applaud recipients Warren Plot of Hummelstown, who served in the Air Force in World War II; Max Elwood Colbertson of Carlise, who served in the Army in Korea; Harold Bowman of Schaefferstown, who served as a Marine in Vietnam; Matthew Corwin of Red Lion, who served as a Marine in the Gulf War; Steve Macdonald of Mechanicsburg, who served in the Navy in Iraq; and Ed Fisher of Lewisburg, who served in the Army in Afghanistan.
