VAB hosted the first ever media preview of “Operation Bullseye” Tuesday, September 15th at VT Army National Guard’s Training Site, Camp Ethan Allen, in Jericho.
12 radio personalities, TV reporters and photographers got a taste of what it’s like to gear up and try to “qualify” using an M4 Carbine rifle.
Soldiers of Bravo Company showed us how to take the prone position, lock and load our weapons and gave us tips on how to aim and hit our pop up targets anywhere from 50-300 meters away.
This media preview was organized to help promote “Operation Bullseye”, a VT Army National Guard community event that gives civilians a rare opportunity to visit Camp Ethan Allen Training site in Jericho and experience their shooting range.
Operation Bullseye is happening this Saturday 9/19 from 9AM-4PM and Sunday 9/20 from 9AM-2PM. Pre-registration is not required, but save to at the gate by pre-registering at https://www.facebook.com/VTARNG/
