Personal Message:

OPERATION CHAPPY. Air Commandos and friends, the ACA Tampa Bay Chapter has been supporting the Southeastern Guide Dog Walkathons since 2012.  We started out small, sponsoring a water station for $500, but recently we expanded our support to sponsoring a guide dog's name. Naming a dog costs $5000 and we have raised enough money to name two dogs, Sweet Lou, and Utah. This year we are reaching for the stars hoping to raise $25000. $25000 will allow us to name a dog Chappy after MOH winner, MSgt John Chapman, provide a scholarship to a military veteran in need of a guide dog, and provide some post-training seed money for the veteran to get off to a good start with his/her new four-legged best friend. 

But we need your help in honoring MSgt John Chapman's legacy by providing a super-hero guide dog and training scholarship to a veteran in need. To achieve our goal, we will need an unprecedented support effort from all the faithful, individual and corporate sponsors. I hope you share  the same drive and determination in your heart that our Chapter has in meeting this goal.  Any Time. Any Place!
