MyDeejay is proud to announce that, in honor of our many clients who are current or former military service members, we will make a donation to The Wounded Warrior Project for each military wedding we book, starting in 2012. This wonderful organization provides support and services to injured service members.
Military weddings hold a special place in our hearts. I was raised an Army brat – my father spent many years as an officer in the U.S. Army, and after retiring as a lieutenant colonel, he spent another 20 years working in military intelligence for the federal government. He officially retires this summer after a lifelong career serving our country, and I couldn’t be prouder. My dad is my hero. Evan’s dad, too, served in the U.S. Navy, being stationed all over the place, and Evan and I collectively have grandparents, uncles, cousins and friends who have served or are currently serving in the armed forces.
MyDeejay has always been privileged to provide music for many military men and women each year; we’ve done numerous weddings at the Fort Belvoir Officers’ Club, Fort Myer Officers’ Club, Naval Academy Officers’ Club and Alumni Hall, and Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. One of our fantastic DJs, Sean Johnson, happens to be a military veteran himself, having served eight years as a combat support MP in the U.S. Army.
If you’re a military service member, current or former, and are planning to hire a wedding DJ in 2012, we hope you’ll consider MyDeejay. We’re honored to donate to The Wounded Warrior Project for each military wedding we book this year. To learn more, please contact us or visit our DJs Sean Johnson, Brian Jones and Trevor Blake at the Fort Belvoir Officers’ Club Bridal Fair on February 25, 2012.
