Fullerton, California --(Ammoland.com)- Not all the news about the Veterans Administration is bad these days.

The California Rifle and Pistol Association and The CRPA Foundation are proud to partner with the Jerry L. Pettis Veteran Administration Hospital in Loma Linda, California this year to help veterans get their day in the spotlight.

The National Veterans Golden Age Games, a 27-year-old program, is the world’s largest sports and recreation competition for military Veterans 55 years of age and older and they are taking place June 28 – July 2, 2014.

California VA Hospitals coordinate the Veteran’s transportation and housing arrangements to get our state’s entrants to the games. This year, The CRPA Foundation donated $500 to help veterans compete in the Air Rifle.

The Games showcase the rehabilitation value that fitness provides in the lives of older Americans.

“Keeping active is important to overall health and this program is a great way to highlight those seniors in our state that not only have dedicated their life to serving our country but also have committed themselves to staying healthy in their golden years,” said John C. Fields, CRPA Executive Director.

“We wanted to make sure that money wasn’t an issue in sending our California veterans to compete this year.”

CRPA (founded in 1875) and The CRPA Foundation are organizations of sportsmen committed to the preservation of our American heritage, dedicated to protecting firearm freedoms and promoting shooting sports in California.
