Every year, the American Red Cross in Anchorage celebrates individuals throughout the state for varying acts of heroism. This year, Lenora Moses, general manager for the Residence Inn Anchorage Midtown, and her husband, Command Sergeant Major Eugene Moses, participated by giving a testimonial on the heroism of the Red Cross itself. Lenora and her husband addressed the participants with a description of the support military families receive from the Red Cross each year.
“The Red Cross is such a blessing to military members and their families,” said Lenora. “They are the folks you call when you have a family emergency and you are hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away from home and your spouse is deployed to a foreign country that you can barely locate on a map. They are able to bring family members back together during very difficult times, and for that, we are eternally grateful.”
The Moses’ presentation also acknowledged the sacrifice service member families make while their loved ones are away from home, often in harm’s way. While most of us see the Red Cross as an organization that helps victims of fire and flood, Lenora and her husband helped others see the Red Cross in a new light, shining as a resource for the families of our servicemen and women on active duty.
Matt Daggett, president of NMS, and Vice President of Marketing and Communications Dawn Kimberlin were also in attendance at the early morning breakfast presentation along with representatives from several other NANA companies. “Lenora and her husband, Eugene, did a terrific job of recognizing the Red Cross for their contributions to the American military and their families,” said Matt. “The Red Cross is a worthy organization, deserving of our appreciation and support.”
