Two Two US Army 3rd Group Special Forces Members to Honor their fallen comrade, CW2 Michael Duskin “Big Mike” at the Nov 18th Bushmaster Tarheel 3 Gun Monthly Match.
Clay Martin and Eric Eckhardt both members of the US Army 3rd Group S/F will honor their fallen brother, CW2 Michael Duskin “Big Mike” a US Army 3rd Group S/F member who was KIA on 23 October 2012 in Chak Valley Afghanistan. “Big Mike” and his son Jake are regulars at the Tarheel 3 Gun Events. Both Eric and Clay are very accomplished competitive shooters and often spent time away from work with “Big Mike” at several shooting matches.

In honor of their fallen brother they are dedicating this match to “Big Mike” and shooting in the heavy metal class…the division where Mike usually shot. Clay stated, “Charles can you put out a message to the usual crew, Eric and I will be shooting the next match in the Heavy Metal division in honor of Big Mike. My statement at the match would be “We are shooting man sized bullets, in honor of Mike and shotgun not very well, in honor of Mike.”

Clay and Eric invite anyone (with the gear) to join in with them and honor “Big Mike” at the Nov 18th Bushmaster Tarheel 3 Gun Match, by bringing out the “BIG GUNS”. All Heavy Metal shooters match fees will be added to the TH3GN memorial fund for Big Mike.
