Long Island Firearms Donates Time To Help Overseas Military Members

Long Island’s Local Second Amendment Rights Group Donates Time To Help Our Military Members Serving Overseas


Ronkonkoma, NY –-(Ammoland.com)- Long Island Firearms, New York’s foremost online firearms enthusiast community, reports today that they have successfully completed a new phase in their community outreach efforts.

Joe, Long Island Firearms’ Jacob’s Light Event Coordinator, reports a very successful night readying care packages for our troops serving overseas. Their service took place at the monthly packing event for Jacob’s Light Foundation, headed by Dorine Kenny, mother of Jacob Fletcher, a US Soldier killed serving his country in Iraq in 2003.

“I can not begin to tell you how positive the air was in that room.”, said Joe.

“We mattered. We made a difference. This was a wonderful thing.” He went on to say that he and his fellow LIF members were moved by the experience. “We were physically exhausted at the end of the evening, but it was the best kind of tired. We can’t wait to do this again.”

Steve, Administrator of Long Island Firearms, was heartened by the fact that this event grew out of a desire from the membership.

“In the short time we’ve been a community, we’ve done neighborhood cleanups through the Adopt-A- Highway Program, we’ve had a Blood Drive, and now we’ve helped to serve our Troops serving overseas.”

He added, “Its events like these that help us to come together as a community and help our neighbors. It also helps to dispel the stereotypes of firearms enthusiasts so prevalent in the New York area.”

Jacobs Light’s mission is to send our military overseas necessities and comforts from home. They focus on military without family or support from home. They want to give them the support they need and to be a lifeline from America. Their website is www.jacobsprogram.org
