A letter from our Gala speaker Navy SEAL Jon Sanchez June 7,2011:
I hope you are doing well and recovering from a long successful weekend! Thank you for your vision of creating such a place. More importantly, THANK YOU for your passion to see it through. I know there was a lot of hard work and effort that went into making the Gala such a success. You made it seem easy. From the Air show to the last guest leaving, it was such a high class event. Congratulations.
I also wanted to thank you for the opportunity to speak on Friday night. It truly was one of the greatest honors to speak with such a group of patriots and heroes. I would especially like to thank you for having my family there. It meant a great deal to my parents. My grandfather, on my father's side, was a WWII vet in the Philippines. My Grandfather, on my mother's side, was a Submariner in the Pacific.
I visited the museum on Thursday to get the layout and talk to the crew. I quickly realized the importance of everything that you are doing. I saw the banners, the new hanger, the aircraft. When I went home I told my wife, "this could be the most important speech I give in my life". I felt that way on Friday night. As you said, when you see these vets come walking in the door, it's hard not be passionate about the museum.
I wish you great continued success in fundraising. Hopefully, you will be outgrowing your 2nd hanger in 5 years.
Your work is so important to America. I look forward to visiting the museum again with my children and cub scout den.
I also look forward to riding in a P-51!!! Can't wait for that.
Please pass my heartfelt thanks to your Board. You guys are incredible.
Jonathan M. Sanchez
