Several managers from IMI will be in Las Vegas this week for Pubcon, a large internet marketing show. There is a poker tournament on Thursday night at The Mirage and our President Brandon Fishman will be playing. Any winnings from this event will go towards The Naval Special Warfare Foundation which provides financial support to the families and children of SEALs killed or injured in combat. Recently we lost several of our Navy SEAL heroes:
On 13 SEP LT Dan Cnossen lost both legs below the knees when he stepped on an IED during a combat operation in Afghanistan. He is at Bethesda Naval Hospital undergoing treatment for his wounds. You can learn more at his website.
On 24 SEP Ryan Jobe a SEAL who last eyesight in both eyes when he was wounded in Iraq in 2006 underwent a major operation that unfortunately resulted in a complication that caused him to lose his life. Since he was wounded Ryan had been a spokesman for the NSW community. His wife is pregnant with their first child.
