The Federal Bar Association of North Louisiana held its 5th Annual Clay Shoot to benefit airmen at Barksdale AFB at the Shreveport Gun Club on Friday, Sept. 15. There were over 80 participants in the shoot and over 15 airmen from Barksdale helped at the event. Once again, this fundraiser was for Operation Bright Holiday, a project that sends first-year airmen home from Barksdale for the holidays. A donation of $10,000 was presented on behalf of the Federal Bar Association to Col. Ty Neuman, 2nd Bomb Wing Commander, at Barksdales’ Octoberfest on October 6. The donation is expected to help approximately 80 airmen spend the 2017 holidays with their families.
Col. Neuman was a special guest and speaker at the event. He and airman Jennifer Haldeman spoke about the importance and value of Operation Bright Holiday. Ms. Haldeman related her personal experience with it and how it enabled her to be home with her sick grandfather in Washington state for the first time in over two years.
The North Louisiana Chapter of the Federal Bar Association was organized locally in 2008 by U.S. District Judge Maury Hicks and U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Hornsby. “Judge Hicks and I started it to improve the dialogue between and among the community, local lawyers and federal judges,” Hornsby said. The immediate past president at the time, Scott Chafin, came up with the idea of a clay shoot fundraiser and the first one was held in 2013.
Gregorio, Chafin, Johnson, Poolson & Tabor is proud to play a role in sending home our heroes and we extend the deepest gratitude to our men and women serving as Barksdale Airmen.
