To Our Dedicated School Officials,
As a retired Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps, Iraq War Veteran, and a father of two, I want to encourage you and your school to participate in our Jeans for Troops program to support our veterans.
In the past, support from this program has helped veterans like myself all across the country get the care and resources they need to provide for their loved ones. And now, as GI Go celebrates the ten year anniversary of its founding, we hope that you and your school participate in the largest dress down day for Veterans in America to honor Memorial Day in 2016.
Thanks to schools like yours throughout the United States, we have been able to donate tens of thousands of dollars in financial assistance to veteran families in need during the holiday season. We have helped local veterans organizations rebuild their facilities so they can adequately serve veterans in their community. We have improved the lives of military members and their loved ones from coast to coast, and we could not have done it without support from the teachers and faculty of America’s schools!
This year’s national Jeans for Troops day is May 26th and we hope you register soon so we can send you the program materials in the mail. Hundreds of schools have already signed up, and your support can make the difference in the lives of so many veterans in our community.
We are grateful for your support! If you have any questions please email me back or call 866-389-GIGo(4446).
