Battalion Gunsmith


Late last week I received my diploma from Professional Career Development Institute. I have completed the course in “The Professional Gunsmithing Program”. This will be a welcome asset for the Battalion. I am temporarily limited to what I can do till I can get a workshop built and get some more tools. However, I am good to go for black powder rifles. I am well stocked on parts for the Enfield 1853 army sport and euro rifles. I look forward to serving the Battalion.

2007 Memorial Day Parade

This year 11 or our bravest military members marched in the Royal Oak Memorial Day parade ahead of seven courageous civilians. This year’s weather provided our march with a more conducive atmospheric condition (in other words…we didn’t march in the sweltering morning heat as we did last year). Our highlight was the fact that Cpl. Craig O’Connor flew all the way in from Florida to carry our flag. (Supposedly he had nothing better to do that weekend). It was great to see Craig and see all of the recoveries he’s made since his November mishap. Our very own “Gus Thompson” even made the third page of the first section of The Royal Oak Daily Tribune. Pizza, salad, and camaraderie were had by all after the Memorial Day ceremonies.
