Institute Donates $25,000 to Semper Fi Fund

The Potomac Institute donated $25,000 to the Injured Marine Semper Fi Fund, representing proceeds from sales of "Al Gray, Marine: The Early Years."  Gen. Al Gray and author Scott Laidig were on hand to present the check with Mike Swetnam, CEO.  Receiving the check were Karen Guenther, President, CEO and Founder of the Semper Fi Fund; and Bob Bowlin, Semper Fi Fund treasurer.

“Al Gray, Marine” is the first volume in a biography series of the former Commandant and is available on Amazon.com - here.    Proceeds from sales of the book go to The Semper Fi Fund.

Since 2004, Semper Fi Fund, and its program America's Fund, have provided immediate financial assistance and lifetime support for injured and critically ill members of the post 9/11 U.S. Armed Forces and their families. The Semper Fi Fund's streamlined structure keeps overhead very low, 6%; they are also one of three veteran charities to receive an "A+" rating from The American Institute of Philanthropy, and a "Four Star" rating from Charity Navigator.   The Semper Fi Fund has given more than 67,000 grants totaling more than $85 million to over 11,000 service members and their families.
