The event was unbelievable. You could have heard a pin drop once Scott O’Grady started his story. I had heard him speak in November and was as much enthralled as everyone. His story is so moving that even some of the guys were emotional. He made us all so proud to be American. Everything was handled in a proficient and professional manner. Thank you for providing the wonderful speaker and for making my job so much easier.
