Commiskey Wheat gave away a K-Bar plaque built by our on Presidential helicopter pilot Wiley Sellers. At the show any Marine, Navy Corpsman or Navy Chaplain was able to register for free for this drawing. We were able to get over 50 names, addresses and phone numbers so we can use in recruiting. This Marine is Wanda Magers the Sr. Vice of the General Louis H. Wilson Detachment. That is ok we wanted all Marines to sign up. We had a great show to raise money to help veterans.
