Thank you

The marines of Mike Spann Detachment thank all of those who participated in our 3rd Annual Memorial Run on February 18th. We deeply appreciate our friends and supporters in the community who have taken this to heart.

This year we registered 89 runners on a near perfect spring time day in February. Now in our third year, we feel like we finally have our heads around the big picture and the small details. It was an all-around good day made possible through a great team effort.

Congratulations are extended to the Hillcrest High School JROTC for taking the General Willie Williams Trophy, and to the individual runners who placed in their categories.

 While we know that individual runners participate for personal goals, the fund raising result of the collective effort enables our detachment to carry on an active service role to Marine veterans and families in west Alabama. Without you we simply could not complete our mission; you are sincerely appreciated.

In closing we also want to also want to thank our organizational supporters and sponsors. Their names and links to their websites appear below. The only benefit for them is goodwill and a small bit of advertising. Please take note of the list and links, and if their product or service can be of use to you, we hope this note will serve to not only say thank you, but to create value for you and them.

 Thank you again for your support, enthusiasm, and participation.

Semper Fidelis,
Calvin Vreeland, Commandant
