Outside of Washington, D.C., and inside the Trump supporting county of Farquier, Va., the American Legion’s “Junior Shooting Sports Program” is in its eighth year. The program is under the legion’s “Americanism” mission, which promotes gun safety and marksmanship and includes 15,000 students nationwide. Sixteen local students in Warrenton, Va., are provided with equipment funded in part by grants from the National Rifle Association.

Cheerleaders from Faquier High School wait for their parade to begin through the center of Warrenton, Va., in honor of their homecoming, Oct. 10, 2017.
