“There is a Veteran’s Archery event at Reedy’s Archery.” Jason Cox, who is the Middleborough, MA Veteran’s Service Officer, put on an event for Veterans with Chris Reed of Reedy’s Archery.
The event was on a Monday night, and I was expecting 12 -15 people. Over 60 people showed up to try out archery and meet other Veterans. It was cool to see so many people enjoying themselves. Chris and his staff worked with all the Veterans the entire night. People who had never picked up a bow before were putting arrows on target. The looks on their faces was worth the ride.
I had my bow out for the event. I hadn’t shot it in quite a while and figured why not bring it. Once I started going through the process, my mind kind of clicked and said remember how much you liked this? Archery was fun again!
At the close of the evening, Chris Reed put the word out that he wanted a Reedys Archery Veterans Team. The women Veterans jumped all over this and within 24 hours, a team was formed with practice times.
Being able to talk with other Veterans while practicing archery has been great. This isn’t active duty service, but more and more we are acting like a unit. We encourage each other when we off and celebrate every bullseye.
All this would not have been possible without Chris Reed, his family and the wonderful staff and coaches of Reedy’s Archery. We Veterans are looking forward to dominating!
