Before modern military tactics were developed, it was common for the General to move to an elevated position to observe the battle.

Thursday, December 17, 2015

It's our favorite time of the year! We held our 12th annual Toys For Tots drive from November 23rd through December 9th, and collected 190 toys. This year we offered to match every toy donated, so our grand total was 380! WOW! We're so honored to be a part of this amazing outreach at the Holidays. Joining us for the annual Holiday Luncheon to celebrate on December 10th were Marines Captain Hartwig and Sargent Smith. Big thanks to our Office Mom, Executive Assistant Bonnie Whyte, for organizing everything. Our Assistants cooked the food and everything was, to quote Managing Director Don Patrick, "Awesome!"
