"I was honored to travel to Washington, D.C., a couple of years ago and be by Randy's side as he distributed foundation checks to the selected recipients. At that moment, everything in this world seemed to stop and be less significant. My dedication and support to the foundation became a lifelong commitment at that moment."

David Mancuso

David Mancuso

Ambassador - Nevada & Florida

"As an immigrant to the USA, I have come to appreciate the little things that make this country so great. Mostly the opportunities that are so available even for the least of us. Anyone can have a dream here and anyone can see it through with a little effort. Everyone is somewhat protected and everyone has a say. Everyone matters. This standard that creates this buffer of power between all United States Citizens was created by our country’s forefathers to help assure freedom and wellbeing. This Standard is THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This is the land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. The Armed Forces of our US Military assures this freedom and protects its citizens everyday from within and from abroad. My heart goes out to all the men and women of our military. I thank them for their service and wish upon them wellness, safety and protection. The least we can do is contribute our time and help raise funding for those men and women that come back wounded and are struggling due to their Military Service related injuries and or illnesses. We love you and pray for you. God bless the USA."

"I believe our Veterans deserve our utmost respect. They honor us with their presence. They are men of courage and discipline. The best way to show that respect is with action and by actively participating in the XCGIF fundraising events I can give back and honor these great heroes that have sacrificed so much. It is an honor to help and support the Mission of the XCGIF: to help those veterans and families struggling to return to civilian life."
