We are excited to announce that the Class will be donating $2002 to Run To Honor on Veterans Day. From their mission statement:
The mission of Run To Honor is to honor Naval Academy alumni lost in combat or military operations. With a spirit of camaraderie and through participation in athletic and memorial events, we perpetuate the memory of our fallen brothers and sisters and express support for the families they leave behind.
Run To Honor's annual Memorial Dinner will be held in Annapolis on Friday, November 14. This is an extraordinarily powerful event with families, friends, and shipmates gathering to share stories of their loved ones, celebrate their lives, and honor their sacrifice. For more information on the event and to purchase tickets, visit Run To Honor's site. Mention '02 in the comments block to be seated with your classmates!
We would like to thank Phil Ujiie, John Karantonis, Scott McCord, and Mike Vlachakis for their work researching potential donation recipients and for providing a recommendation to the board.
In January we will be creating a short-term committee to make a recommendation to improve our communications within the Class. If you are interested in contributing, please email Josh.
