A crowd gathered at the Alabama Veterans Museum in Athens September 11th at 10am to learn the winner of a commemorative carbine donated by Remington.
Together We Stand, a citizen group organized in January to support law enforcement and First Responders, sold chances on the carbine to support their effort. Before Steve Hornberger, Assistant Director of the Veterans Museum, spun the round wire cage, Jerry Barksdale thanked Remington for their support.
Museum President, Jerry Crabtree was blindfolded and drew the winning ticket. “And the winner is….Rex Davis of Athens,” he announced. A loud groan erupted from the losers. Barksdale called Davis and relayed the good news. “Are you kidding me?” asked Davis. Shortly, Davis arrived, picked up his carbine and donated $500 to Together We Stand.
