Bill Keegan, HEART 9/11 Founder/President, was honored to be a guest of Kim Foley – a “Marine for Life” – at the 240th United States Marine Corps Birthday Gala held at the Intrepid Museum last night. The military guest of honor was General Robert B. Neller – Commandant, United States Marine Corps. The “Marine For Life” award was given to Richard “Sandy” Alderson – General Manager, NY Mets. The “Marine For Life” award is presented at each Birthday Gala to a Marine who has personified, both on active duty and in civilian life, distinguished community service driven by moral and ethical values that are the pride and strength of the United States Marine Corps. Over the years HEART 9/11 members and volunteers have been proud to build homes for returning injured marines. There are several upcoming projects in the veteran community on the 2016 calendar that we are excited about. HEART 9/11 vows to “Never Forget” the fallen, their families and the men and women in uniform all over the world.
