MMA Functions

I came to Harlingen to attend three functions at the Marine Military Academy:

  1. A Board of Trustees meeting, because I'm hoping to serve as an Advisor;
  2. The General H.M. Smith Dinner, honoring those individuals who have donated large sums to the school;
  3. The Iwo Jima memorial parade, commemorating the WWII battle for Iwo Jima and honoring those who served there.

As a side benefit, or perhaps the side benefit was the primary reason I attended, I got to visit with some old friends with whom I attended school, and some whom I've met since leaving school.  In addition to the staff and faculty, Board members, donors, parents, and cadets who attended, there were eight Alumni.

This is just a small selection of the great guys who have graduated from MMA over the years.  I count myself fortunate to be associated with these men.
