Attendees will experience shooting in multiple firing positions at varying distances. While this course is named for the common round fired by the AR-15 (“.223 Remington”) any safe semi-automatic carbine can be used.

We’ll discuss specifics of this Close Quarters Battle that took place inside a home in the Boston suburb of Menotomy on April 19th, 1775—the very first day of the American Revolutionary War.

Win an Autographed Copy of “Lone Survivor”
At every Revere’s Riders event we tell some of the history of April 19th, 1775 and the Battles of Lexington and Concord, events that occurred over 240 years ago. The spirit of the heroes who gave the full measure of their “lives, fortune and sacred honor” on April 19th, 1775 still lives on in the modern United States military.
I doubt Marcus Luttrell needs any introduction to those contemplating attending this event. For those who don’t already know his story, Marcus was deployed to Afghanistan in 2005 with Seal Team Ten as a Hospital Corpsman Second Class. He and three other members of Seal Team Ten (Navy Lieutenant Michael P. Murphy, operation commander, Petty Officer Second Class Danny Dietz and Petty Officer Second Class Matthew G. Axelson) were assigned to Operation Red Wings.
During the initial stages of Operation Red Wings, the team was discovered by local Afghan goat herders. After determining the goat herders were most likely civilians and not combatants, the team released them according to the ROE (“rules of engagement”). The goat herders would inform the Taliban of the team’s position and all but Luttrell would become casualties in the ensuring battle.
