National Freedom First Recognition
September 25, 2015 / September 27, 2015 - All Day
The Freedom First|DC event recognizes our first class of Freedom Rangemen by inviting them to Washington, DC for a weekend event September 25-27, 2015.
Board Chairman John Stemberger and TLUSA CEO Mark Hancock teamed up to raise funds to send 30 of our first class of Freedom Rangemen to Washington, DC for ‘Freedom First|DC’ on September 25-27, 2015.
Their travel, hotel, formal dinner, and awards ceremony are paid for through the generosity of Trailmen and friends of Trail Life USA.
They will be honored at a national gathering (livestream details to come), conduct a veterans honor flight welcome and ceremony, receive a VIP Capitol tour, and hear from VIP speakers at a private ceremony.
We’d love to go one step further and return a $100 deposit to each of the young Rangemen so they can have spending money for this once-in-a-lifetime inaugural event.
‘Freedom First’ events will be held in odd years in different cities. We chose DC for the first one for the symbolism. Future events will be in different cities.
Would you help us go the final mile by giving? The need has been met, but wouldn’t it be nice to go the extra mile for these amazing young men?
Trailmen are the most generous people we know!
In the meantime, save the date and watch the Freedom Award video (if you haven’t seen it yet!).
The Freedom Award is the highest award in Trail Life USA. This video shows the meaning behind the award.
