Commander's Challenge

My challenge is to raise $1 million for NEF. It's a lofty goal, but we can do it. Given regular tornado activity in the Midwest, Superstorm Sandy and other hurricanes, and deadly wildfires in the western states, the question is not if a natural disaster will hit, but when and where. So I encourage you to support fundraisers for this most worthy cause.
