We had such an amazing evening last night honoring  Rear Admiral Margaret DeLuca “Peg” Klein, U.S. Navy, Ret., who received the 2017 SIF National Education & Leadership Award (NELA), the  Honorable Jessica Garfola Wright, Major General, Ret., who received the 2017 SIF Award for Courage and Patriotism, and Anthony J. Cancelosi  who received the 2017 SIF Humanitarian Award, as well as the SIF scholarship recipients.

Thanks to all of our generous sponsors and everyone in attendance: we hope you were proud to be part of such a special evening.  

For those of you who were unable to attend the NELA Gala, we wanted to share with you a video that moved the entire room.  We hope you find the video as moving as all of us - click here to watch or click on the video below.
