The Honorable R. Gordon England
The Secretary’s VMGR Monument Fundraising Challenge
The Honorable Gordon R. England, former Assistant Secretary of Defense and two-time Secretary of the Navy, former President of Lockheed Martin, and friend of MCATA, has endorsed our VMGR Monument Project and has pledged his own individual donation of $25,000 to help us fund our VMGR Memorial Monument and has challenged all of us to meet his challenge.
Please make your donation today. Any amount will do, and you can donate as many times as you like. All donations are tax deductible. Please pass this challenge along to others and help us reach our goal.
In addition to your donation, we ask that you think about others in your area who would help us. They don’t have to be former VMGR Marines or even former military. There are hundreds of thousands of patriotic people out there like Secretary England who would be willing to help if asked and you may even personally know one or more of them. They might be friends and family or members of other organizations like the VFW or American Legion. Most of us are members of more than one association. If you do, please reach out to them. If you need materials or talking points or help writing an ask letter reply to this email and we’ll get those to you.
On 20 December we passed the $121,000 dollar mark. We still have a way to go but are making steady progress.
This is our legacy! It deserves proper recognition. The challenge has been issued. Will YOU help us meet that challenge? Please do and share this email with your friends.
Please help and share this letter with others.
MCATA-Secretary and Past President
