Mr Mark Johnson, COO CMP
When my son Travis and I were selected for the October 1-3 CMP AMC, back in November 2019, we decided to spend the week prior to the course in the Anniston area and visit with family in Huntsville.
We had visited the South Store and the TMP in July 2018 and had a great time at both places so we figured that we should spend some extra time getting to know the area, the people and enjoy some warm weather before our upcoming cold Alaska winter.
We had the opportunity to visit the south store several times and were able to purchase several very nice rifles.
I would like to praise the South Store staff and Armors that were present during our visits. They all went above and beyond helping us and providing information about the M1s, M1903s, and M1917s so that we could make informed purchases.
Ellyn, Austen, Ben, Taska, Colby, Jeff, Matt, and a special mention for Bobby, also the many other staff members that I don’t recall by name, all are outstanding representatives of the CMP and the South Store. (I am truly sorry that I do not recall all their names). Everyone was patient with Travis and I and our dozens of questions. True Southern Hospitality!
We had the opportunity to meet Sandy and Jennifer at the armory. They are also excellent representatives of the CMP.
We were fortunate to have met the CMP volunteer Armor Mr. John Beard, and his lovely wife, while we were in Huntsville. What an amazing knowledgeable man and just all round nice person. We learned a lot about WW1 bolt action rifles during our visit with him. Truly a fine gentleman.
Thank you sir for the leadership you provide the CMP. It is an outstanding organization.
