Front Sight Mail Bag: Wondered Because of So Much Past Training…
March 19th, 2014
Dear Dr. Piazza,
I actually went there wondering what I would get. I have had quite a bit of past training plus combat experience in Vietnam I brought a 9mm which I am selling and thus didn’t bring my top holster and ammo pouch equipment. I wanted to burn up 9mm’s. In my mind I was a bit embarrassed because I did not bring my best equipment. Everything about Front Sight is the best, so I should have been equipped at that level. As it was, I graduated 2 points below Distinguished Graduate (DG). I did get one of your challenge coins as “Top Dog” shooter, but knew I could have been the second DG. There was only one in the class, so I now realize you are serious about graduation certificates, too. You are doing it right, and I hope you are able to keep that level in the future!
