In all, the NGEF raised $410,000 through the program in 2010, its best year ever. “I’ve been so involved over the years and my family has been so involved in the Guard that I decided to make this contribution in the name of our family,” said retired Col. Ray Magill Sr. of Massachusetts, the NGAUS board’s retired/separated Air representative from 1995 to 2010. “Mysie and I believe educating the stakeholders about the National Guard is the most important role we can play, and through this gift we encourage others to support the National Guard Educational Founda-tion,” said Maj. Gen. Ronald O. Harrison of Florida, the NGAUS chair-man from 2000 to 2002. The Harrisons and Magills were among the new LdL members hon-ored during a special reception at the National Guard Memorial in Wash-ington, D.C., Nov. 20.
