The GCA, as approved by our Board of Directors, used surplus funds to underwrite the production of “America’s Rifle – The M1 Garand” by Semper Vi Entertainment. We are proud of this worthwhile project, and it perfectly aligns with our mission statement. As a bonus to our membership, the Board of Directors additionally approved a free copy of the DVD for current members, those renewing memberships, as well as new members with a cut-off date of 15 December 2012. As a result of an oversight on our part, that information was not posted correctly on our website. A new cut-off date was established as 22 February 2013, and that is the date currently published on our website. It is important to note that unpaid volunteers comprise the GCA leadership in addition to the unpaid volunteers who write, edit and help publish the GCA Journal, our world-class magazine. For those who paid for a DVD that otherwise would have received a gratis copy, please contact our management company, if you desire, to make reasonable arrangements that will make you whole. Additionally, if you are still waiting on your copy to arrive, please be patient with our management team.

Member feedback of the GCA’s DVD has been wonderful. We at the GCA are very happy to hear the project is being well received, and thank the members for their positive feedback.
Here’s just one of the kind letter’s we’ve received;
|Subject: GCA DVD “America’s Rifle – The M1 Garand”.

From: Gary S.
To: GCA Board of DirectorsThank You for the great DVD that I received on Saturday. I watched the entire thing, including
the bonus extras, without stopping.I was amazed at the quality and the insight to the history of the M1 along with all of the bonus material, which just added to the experience.The quality of this DVD is as good as it gets, and I believe anyone who owns a Garand would want to own a copy.Thank you for the information that I always wanted to know about my Garands without reading a series of books to learn some of what you presented. I also liked the coverage of other military rifles in comparison to give a better prospective as to the history of the M1.I am sure that I will watch this many times again in the future and especially when I finally go to break my Garands down for a good cleaning – that part was very valuable.Thanks again for the great addition to my membership – this is certainly an example of going above and beyond expectations for what is expected as a member of any organization.Gary S.
