From Mogadishu to Nashville: Keni Thomas Profiled on the NRA's Newly Launched
"Life of Duty Network"
Nashville, TN, Jan. 25, '11....From the Battle of Mogadishu, to his career as a country music artist, Keni Thomas' "Patriot Profile" is prominently featured on the NRA's newly launched, "NRA Life of Duty Network." The comprehensive documentary, debuting today at http://www.nralifeofduty.com.tv/#/home, will remain archived online on the "Life of Duty" channel.
Thomas, who recently returned from his sixth consecutive USO "Hope and Freedom Holiday Tour" of the Middle East, has authored a book which is scheduled for publication in September 2011. He has been in the studio in Nashville writing and recording songs for his next album.
Launched in honor of Veteran's Day, 2010, the new NRA Life of Duty channel is the latest in the NRA's commitment to service members and law enforcement. The network, dedicated to all members of the armed forces and law enforcement personnel, provides news, information and entertainment for those whose profession is keeping America safe.
Serving those who serve has been paramount to the NRA since its inception in 1871, having been founded to help solve the problem of poor marksmanship exhibited by many Federal troops during the Civil War. This commitment continued during World Wars I and II, when NRA assisted in developing military marksmanship programs and opened its ranges for military training. Later, in the 1960's the NRA recognized in police some of the same marksmanship problems first noticed in the military, leading to the development of police training programs and NRA's dedicated Law Enforcement Division.
