Well our first Halos and Heroes Hangar Celebration brought us our main objective in being able to raise awareness of our Air Compassion for Veterans (ACV) program as well as to raise funds. I want to thank you for being an important part of making our event such a success.
John, as I mentioned to you on the phone last Sunday, the H.R. Metro Band was a fabulous highlight for our event. My only regret is that I wasn't able to speak to each member to thank them personally not only for participating but also for their exceptional performance and appearance.
I don't know if you were able to speak to any of the wounded warriors from Walter Reed? Hearing their stories and realizing how their injuries are so overwhelming and life altering, was a reality check. I am so grateful God brought me to ACV and MMA and see how ACV can make a huge difference in serving them.
Hope you all were able to stay for the Honors Ceremony... ..yet hope you left before the USO show. Apparently their "star" singer and lead on the recording did not arrive due to a death in his family. That threw the whole order of the show off as well as the local audio people having generator and technical problems etc.. ...but when the McCormick Brothers came on, it was fabulous as was the finale of the song "She's an Army of One."
Anyway, I thank you all again for your dedication and participation in our Halos and Heroes event. I hope you will be on board for next years "Halos and Heroes II". If you ever have any needs or questions please don't hesitate to call me at 271-2289.
