Giving Back: The Story Of Valley Forge Military Academy’s Rifle Club

    Safety and marksmanship all begin somewhere for many of us. We at TFB believe it is extremely important to give back to the next generation of shooters, hunters, and collectors that will influence our passions long after we are dead and gone. In this episode of TFB TV, we look at a rifle club that Miles started in 2009 at his old high school, Valley Forge Military Academy & College. That was almost a decade ago and since then the club has grown dramatically in size to what it once was. Thanks to the efforts of the current faculty advisor, Christopher Bechtel. Today the rifle club is extremely well organized, taking cadets to various competitions, tactical shooting, and even historical small arms familiarization. But most importantly is passing the ability to teach cadets safety and marksmanship, skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.
