Memorial Day Tribute

This note came today from my TN Alpha brother Wade Hutchens. Trane McCloud was killed in Iraq several years ago. His TN A brothers and other SigEp veterans rallied to support his widow and young children. You can read more about it by selecting the #Trane McCloud tag.
Brothers,

I hope you and your families will have a safe, and enjoyable holiday weekend!!!

Thank you to Shane for sharing this. I think it serves as a great reminder, at this very appropriate time, Ito ask each of you to consider sending some of your tax refund in to the Fallen Brothers Scholarship Fund. Be sure to note that it is for the benefit of the McCloud children.

Thanks once again to those of you who helped launch the fund last year. Please make it an annual commitment to send it what you can afford to donate. If every Brother that was in the chapter with Trane would send in just $100 a year, we could get all three children through college. Unfortunately, many still don’t know about this tragedy, so if you can afford more it will help greatly.

Fraternally,
Wade Hutchens
The Fallen Brothers Scholarship was established at the Foundation to help out the children of SigEp brothers who are killed while serving in the military. Please consider this as a way to show your compassion.
