  • Barack Obama approves the following message:


    Lead the way is an org formed in honor of my old buddy and High School team mate James Regan (Chaminade '98) who was KIA in Iraq last Feb 9 to raise money to support familles of Army Rangers lost, injured or who are currently serving. Jim showed the epitome of service when after graduating from Duke University, turned down countless other opportunities to enlist and serve his country as an Army Ranger. If you can make the event, please try and do so. Ill be doing my best to make it up there with a few other guys from Fort Bragg.
