"It is impossible for me to overstate the impact and influence that the FOASD has on our program. Your involvement and interactions with our Cadets make the history and traditions of the team come alive. Your presence, support, and mentoring is a real-life example of the long grey line in action. Your financial contributions allow us to provide the athletes with a top-notch athletic experience. And the endowment that you are creating will ensure that this program will be around and thriving for future generations. Thanks for everything you do!"
