Crestview Rotary’s $10K donation helps fund 7SFG recreational area

Published: Saturday, July 13, 2013 at 05:50 PM.

The recreation area should get a lot use.

“There are a lot of good reasons to have that out there,” said 7th SFG Lt. Col. Chad Reiman, who accepted the check. “Enlisted officers and warrant officers have no place to gather and have a barbecue.”

Many soldiers who live at the cantonment lack transportation and can’t travel to Crestview, Fort Walton Beach or Destin, he said.

Working with the USO allowed the Rotary Club to ensure the money was earmarked for the specific project, Dingess said.

“People want to support the military (but) a lot of times they just don't know how,” Blair said. “If there are other community groups or individuals who want to donate towards the project, they can donate to the USO … and I will make sure the money is sent that way.”
