August 2008, Discovery Bay, CA
Thanks to the generosity of the sponsors and participants of the 1st Annual Joey Graves Memorial Golf Tournament, five teens from the local area were able to attend this year’s Freedom Alliance Military Leadership Academy held in Virginia at USMC Base Quantico and US Army Fort Eustis.
The teens selected were Randall Gragg from Antioch, Lucas Masellli and Samuel Silva from Freedom H.S, and Michelle Ambrose and Tyler Perry both from Ripon’s Jr ROTC program. The Freedom Alliance Military Leadership Academy provides leadership training for life, emphasized through core values of selfless service, courage, dependability, integrity, responsibility, respect and teamwork.
Some Gave All – The Joey Graves Foundation and the America First Foundation continue to strive to provide opportunities for our area youth to develop their leadership skills and to better prepare them to be America’s leaders of tomorrow.
