On 25 May 2019 the My GI Foundation learned that CEO Connor Thomas was being awarded the Army Meritorious Oublic Service Medal. This will be presented by the Adjutant General of Ohio, who happed to be the Assistant Adjutant General when Connor as presented his first of three civilian medals awarded to those who make extraordinary contibutions to our armed forces over a sustained period of time.

CEO Connor Thomas will be deployed in July of 2019 to Hungary as part of the selective Cultural Understanding & Leadership Program (CULP.) The Army recognizes the need for young leaders to develop more cultural awareness and foreign language proficiency skills. Now more than ever, cultural awareness training is a vital component to the ROTC curriculum. Overseas immersions help educate future leaders in ways the classroom cannot. Participants experience up to three different venues during immersion, including host nation military-to-military exchange, humanitarian service, and education on the social, cultural and historical aspects of the country.

Thank You Senator

Senator Joe Uecker took me to lunch when I was fourteen to discuss high level military service and a career in government service. He is a regular speaker at My GI Foundation banquets and is always ready to lend a hand to support my philanthropy and service to veterans. He has represented the 14th District since 2013 as a Republican member of the Ohio Senate.
