Thanks to the Alpha Company 4/7/2017 Families!

They collected $720 in donations!

Special thanks to Martin & Kathy Runge for their extra efforts.

It is much appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you to Dave and Patty Davis for driving all the way from Des Moines, Iowa to hand-deliver a generous donation to the Marine Graduation Foundation. Their son, LCPL Josh Davis, was KIA in Afghanistan only one year after graduating from high school. His memory lives on through the annual Josh Davis Memorial Poker Run, which raises money to help so many military focused nonprofit organizations. The donations come at the cost of a handshake, which we were honored to give. Please take a moment to honor and remember all those that served and died for our freedom. Freedom is not free. Never forget that.
