Since our last newsletter, General Draude, John Hales and I have had the pleasure to travel far and near across America and to have been hosted by so many wonderful people. With this issue, we would like to share a montage of photos, giving you a glimpse of our travels.
Our first event in 2014 (to which we didn’t have to travel far) was a dinner for our Board of Trustees, the evening prior to our February Board Meeting, at the Home of the Commandants at 8th & I, hosted by Bonnie Amos, First Lady of The Marine Corps.

In April, we headed to Kansas City, Missouri, for an event hosted by MCUF at the city’s WWI Museum. It was a wonderful backdrop and was enjoyed by the more than 175 in attendance. General Anthony Zinni, USMC (Ret) was guest of honor. Everyone was further treated by the attendance of Colonel Roger H.C. Donlon, USA (Ret), the first Medal of Honor Recipient from the Viet Nam War.
