That's my oldest son, Michael. He's in the 11th grade this year. I'm so proud of him as a person, and for what he does. He's a real sweetheart...
Michael is in the marching band at his school. They were the only ones in the region to be nominated to perform at the Pearl Harbor Memorial parade in December...in Hawaii!
In December of 2014, the Marching Patriots will be representing the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the memory of all those who served on the U.S.S. Virginia battleship, at the Pearl Harbor Parade in Honolulu, Hawaii. This is an incredible honor for the students, and will truly be a “once in a lifetime” performance.
I would love to be able to visit Hawaii to watch Michael and his band-mates perform in this honorary parade, but without funding, I will miss this once-in-a-lifetime event...
Would you be able to help with my fundraiser? I'm trying to raise money to cover a four-day stay in Honolulu. Just long enough to watch the performance (travel is about one day, each way). It would mean so much to honor and pay respect to the Pearl Harbor Survivors, our veterans, active duty military and their families…as well as support my son during this rare opportunity.
