“CBR and Henry Rifles Honor Medal of Honor Veteran in Cheyenne”

Fort Worth, Texas (Aug 5, 2011) – During each CINCH CBR Tour Event in 2011, CBR in conjunction with Henry Rifles, takes a moment to honor a local Veteran who has served in any branch of the United States Military.  So far this season over 10 Veterans across the country have been awarded the custom Military Service Edition Henry Golden Boy .22 caliber Rifle.

In Cheyenne, Wyoming CBR had a very distinct opportunity.  With the help of the Cheyenne Frontier Days General Committee, CBR and Henry had the opportunity to honor one of our Nation’s greatest heroes.  On Monday night, the first performance of the CBR at Cheyenne, in front of nearly 6,000 bull riding fans, CBR honored United States ARMY Medal of Honor Veteran, Sal Giunta, of Fort Collins, Colorado.

 The Medal of Honor is the highest Military Honor in the world and is awarded only by the President of the United States of America.  Sal was awarded this honor for his distinct acts of heroism during an ambush in Afghanistan, where he retrieved two wounded, but living U.S. ARMY soldiers in the midst of the firefight.

“The opportunity for CBR to Honor these Veterans at each CINCH Tour stop is truly a blessing”, said Scott Davis of CBR. “Let alone to have the opportunity to present the Military Service edition Henry Rifle to a Medal of Honor Veteran here in Cheyenne – it was a Lifetime Experience.  CBR has an undying gratitude for the men and women that serve this country and defend our freedom.  Our partnership with Henry Rifles allows us to do what we can, to recognize the folks that put their lives on the line for us – everyday”.
