Ignatius Piazza: Memorial Day Thank You for All Veterans and Their Families

May 25th, 2009  

Most of you do not know that a decorated WWII Marine who saw action on the islands of Saipan, Tinian, and Iwo Jima provided the single greatest influence in shaping my interest in firearms.

It can be said with total certainty that had he not made the effort to introduce me to the importance of weapons in the hands of responsible citizens, and shared with me the comfort of skill at arms, Front Sight would have never been born so many years later.

I met him as a wet-behind-the-ears young man. He later became my father-in-law.

We spent many evenings together watching westerns and any movie that featured John Wayne. He shared with me the sacrifice that men and women of his generation suffered to allow our country to remain free for the next generation, no matter how little we understood or appreciated what had transpired before us.

He taught me more than he ever imagined and inspired me beyond any thanks I could give him.

In his final hours I held his hand and told him that he was a great man for valiantly serving his country; providing for his family; and raising self-sufficient, productive children.

I told him that although we would miss him dearly, he was free to go. He had completed his mission with honor and we were all better because of him.

And I told him his influence on me would positively affect hundreds of thousands of people through Front Sight.

He squeezed my hand and as tears ran down our faces, I knew he understood.

As a result, Memorial Day means much more to me than barbecues, parades and a national day off work.

I would like to thank all veterans and their families for the sacrifices they provide to keep us free.

Here is my way of saying thanks…

I would like to provide any veteran and any veteran’s family members with a $1,000 certificate to attend a Two Day Defensive Handgun Course for ONLY $100 that can be used at ANY time in the future.

This is the same Two Day Defensive Handgun Course that normally costs $1,000, but I will cover the difference and make it available to you and any members of your family for the next 14 days for only $100.

Secure this $1,000 Two Day Defensive Handgun Course Certificate now for only $100, and attend the course at any time in the future.
