“The CGSC Foundation is extremely proud to have support from FedEx,” said Joan Cabell, CGSC Foundation director of development. “They have been a great sponsor of our ‘Celebration of International Friendship’ for the last two years, helping us shed light on the international officer program, as well as the Command and General Staff College.”
FedEx was brought into the fold of Foundation supporters by Foundation trustee Mike Meyer, a former director of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Foundation.
“Retired Marine Lt. Col. Bob Lewis attended Marine Officer Candidate School with Fred Smith, the CEO of Fedex,” said Meyer. “Bob and I have been friends since 1994 when we worked on the first medical airlift into Vietnam that year. Because of his relationship with Smith, Bob and I have been able to partner with FedEx on numerous relief efforts and other causes together during my time with the VFW Foundation. Getting FedEx support for the CGSC Foundation’s Celebration of International Friendship is just another way FedEx gets involved in the communities where they live and work.”
“We truly appreciate Mike Meyers’ work in bringing FedEx on board,” said Cabell. “FedEx has a great track record of social responsibility and we’re honored we’ve met the standards for their support.”
