24 Hours of LeMons Race – The B.F.E. Group – Blue Falcon Pledge

May 28, 2015

Deer Trail, CO - This is a 2 day long endurance track race, self-described as "Endurance racing for $500 cars. It's not just an oxymoron; it's a breeding ground for morons.

The Blue Falcon Racing Team of 4-6 people will take on this fun-loving challenge and race all day Saturday and Sunday for a total of 18 hours. You can pledge a dollar amount per lap on the bluefalconracing.com website, and help them support our mission. All donations and pledges will go to the Semper Fi Fund! Read the rest of this entry »

Ramblings of a Marine Wife | May 20, 2015 | By Kara | Link to Story

This past weekend, I attended a retreat for caregivers of wounded warriors, organized by the Semper Fi Fund and the America’s Fund.
