Savannah, GA (Feb. 13, 2012) - Sherri L Brown, Senior Vice President of Service to the Armed Forces, American Red Cross on Feb. 6th joined the Board of Directors of the Landings Military Family Relief Fund (LMFRF), and key members of the Savannah Red Cross who administer the Fund, at a special meeting at the Landings Plantation Club.

The purpose of her visit was to recognize the Landings Community for their magnificent contribution of support to our military. She presented the Chairman of the LMFRF, Lou Molella, with her “Service to the Armed Forces Challenge Coin” and thanked the community, “For making a difference”.

Ms. Brown is herself a veteran, and her comments focused on a concern, that the nation is “becoming fatigued with the notion of continuous deployment”. “I have learned much from this visit in regard to appreciating the professionalism of your effort, the synergy you have built with the local Red Cross, and the respect you earned from your military beneficiaries. You are truly a great example of what we are all about!”

The Landings Fund recently received the distinction of being one of 20 finalist from a field of more than 400 submissions to the White House “Joining Forces Community Challenge”. This has brought attention to Savannah, and our coastal military in an on line contest, to win a trip to the White House. Everyone can help in this prestigious effort. You can cast your vote for the Fund on Once registered you can vote every 24 hours until February 23rd.
