Every once in a while I get a great story or hear something wonderful that a company is doing to support the military. I wanted to share this with you and think Michael tells it best himself.
As told by Michael Russer…
Every two years a group of guys (I’m usually the “Father Time” of the group – chronologically anyway :o) do some sort of outdoor adventure. Last time was hiking the Grand Canyonrim to rim in one day. This time we chose to summitMt.Shasta which is the 4th highest mountain inCalifornia and has glacier snow fields year-round.
Meanwhile I had my GAH banner from when we started the program –had the idea of getting some local kids to sign it and I’d carry it to the summit. With school out it was not looking good to find those kids before we went up. However, a day before the trip I noticed a kids Surf Camp at the beach near where I live and they readily agreed to complete the banner to say “Thanks!” for our troops inAfghanistan.
With respect to the troops I thought the symbolism of carrying this memento of our thanks and appreciation to one of the highest summits in the 48 contiguous states was a great way of seeing our fighting men and women as being at the top as well.
