Retired Major Verle Wright Jr. had visitors

Our grand-sons stopped by Hemphill Care Center to visit with a new friend.

Verle Wright Jr. is currently residing in the nursing home

to receive some therapy.

 Major Wright who was an US Army Sharpshooter

has held two world shooting records

and represented U.S.A. in the Melbourne Olympics.


  1. Hi all , just found this. I am Verle’s son. Thank you for posting this and telling all his works. Somewhere I have Verle’s Olympic certificate.

  2. In 1951 – 1954 I was on the Indiana University Varsity Rifle Team with Verle & have some old photos that he might like to see again. I need an address for him.

    • His telephone number is 409 625 4880. He would love to hear from you. I played golf with him yesterday. I will follow up with his current mailing address.
