From the beaches of Normandy, the hills of Korea, the jungles of Vietnam, the sands of Iraq, and the mountains of Afghanistan, America’s servicemen and women have led the fight to preserve freedom around the world, and to keep our own country standing tall. Many have given the ultimate sacrifice, many have returned home injured, all have contributed to our nation and the values it stands for whether combat vet or chow hall cook.
Pride doesn’t begin to express how Henry feels about this chance to salute our Armed Forces with an elaborately decked out tribute edition dedicated to them and their own dedication to duty. Building on a time-honored tradition dating back to the Civil War, when ornately engraved Henry rifles were first presented to veterans as tokens of appreciation, the Military Service Tribute Edition is based on the Golden Boy and chambered in .22 Long Rifle, .22 Long, and .22 Short, with the same adjustable sights, 20” octagonal barrel, walnut furniture, and half-cock “safety” notch on the hammer.
From there, we step up to a highly-polished nickeled receiver cover and add intricate scrollwork and the majestic American bald eagle surrounding a shield bearing the words IN RECOGNITION OF MILITARY SERVICE TO OUR GREAT COUNTRY on the right side, and on the left side the Statue Of Liberty as the face of America’s democracy, opportunity, and hope next to the famed Liberty Bell that rang for a nation that, with the help of our military, will remain forever free. All images, and the laurel leaf borders that surround them, are selectively plated with 24K gold. The recognition SALUTING OUR MILITARY HEROES is cut into the surface on both sides between the front and rear panels; the full-color Stars and Stripes are laser-etched and hand painted along with the words GOD BLESS AMERICA on the stock’s right side.
