Treasure Our Troops!
ThanksUSA held its annual Treasure Our Troops gala at the Four Seasons, celebrating the organization's mission of providing educational scholarships to military spouses and children. Snapped: former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and retired Gen. Richard B. Myers flanking Mary Jo Myers, Richard's wife and a founding member of the ThanksUSA advisory council.
The gala was also the launch of ThanksUSA's Pathways for Patriots initiative, which pairs recipients of the Mrs. Mary Jo Myers Scholarship Fund with employers seeking hard-to-find employees. Here, retired Lt. Gen. Tad Oelstrom and Sheila Casey with Mary Jo and Richard.
