Inaugural One Yard At A Time Gala
Feb. 8, 2019
“It was an honor to be able to take part in the inaugural One Yard at a Time Gala for Lettermen of the USA. Seeing former players, coaches, and fans of opposing colleges and universities coming together to unite in support of this great organization was very special. The opportunity to honor six American hero veterans of World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War is a memory each of us will take away from the evening and remember for the rest of our lives”
--John Lyda, operations manager of claims for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and Hoover City Council member
