Sgt. York Annual Memorial Shoot

Sgt. Alvin C. York, one of his great loves was the shooting match. During Sgt. York's time people came from all over the valley to particpate in the shooting match's. I think the Sgt. would say a big "Thanks" to all the folks that come from all over the country to make the annual Sgt. York Memorial Shoot a tremendous success.

One of the many things I've always heard about the Sgt. and his wonderful wife, Miss Gracie, is that you were always welcome at the Sgt.'s home. Miss Gracie always set a big table. Your also always welcome to the "Valley of the 3 Forks of the Wolf."
