AGC Celebrates Military ShootoutAGC Houston celebrated its Military May Appreciation Month later this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Participants wore facemasks and had safety protocols in place as active and retired veterans - as well as non-military shooting enthusiasts- enjoyed the third annual Vets in Construction Shootout on August 20, 2020. The event comprised a friendly shooting competition, simulator exercises, and a networking opportunity for construction professionals to meet other non-active and retired veterans in the industry.

United Tool and Fastener’s Safety Specialist, Charlie Gertson, won first place in the rifle competition, beating out Paul Olson of LaForce, Inc. in second place and Layton Peschke of Fire Department in third place.

“The third-annual shootout was a blast, and a great networking event,” retired U.S. Navy veteran, Charlie Gertson, Safety Specialist at UTF, said.
