MAD 1 Lewes (2014): After Action Report

I now want to take time to THANK each and every one that helped and contributed to making MAD1 Lewes a success. To each committee member, volunteer boat Captains, general volunteers and our donors and supporters I THANK YOU for our great success in Delaware.

From Left to Right Jim Clark, Boat Committee; Hector Reyes, Chapter President;
Charlie Jerrell “CJ’, Food & Beverage Committee, Judy Mangini, Public Relations;
Christina Earns, Fundraising and Bill Baker, Jr. Chapter vice President.

Let me quote one of my most favorite statements made last year by our Chairman of the Board:

    “When we started planning for the very first Military Appreciation Day event back in 2006, we had a fairly simple idea. The idea was to find a way to thank some very amazing people for all they do for our country. We wanted to thank them for their personal sacrifice, for their dedication to keeping us safe and free and also to celebrate the accomplishments they have achieved. While the men and women of the United States Military are without question the most amazing force in the world, there is a unique parallel that after eight years of MAD is becoming more and more obvious. That realization is that our volunteers and donors are also an amazing force. Because of your hard work, generosity and support, Military Appreciation Day is now the largest, all volunteer “take our troops fishing” event in the world”.

    “Without you, MAD could never accomplish our mission of One, Simple, THANKS! On behalf of the Board of Directors at Military Appreciation Day, Inc., and our volunteers all across the country, thank you for your support and for continuing to be a part of the MAD family!”

We are looking forward to our continued growth in the season to come.


Hector Reyes
Chapter President
