Dennis  Corporation employees recently collected funds to send a fellow employee who is a World War II veteran to Washington, D.C. to visit the World War II Memorial. Sergeant Major Harvey Parks, USMC (Ret.), joined Dennis Corporation as a Marketing Assistant in September, 2009.

Through conversations with SgtMaj Parks, employees of Dennis Corporation found out that he had never been to the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. Recently, Dennis Corporation employees expressed interest in the idea of sending SgtMaj Parks to the Memorial. Dennis Corporation employees collected funds over a two week period, raising a total of $1,800. The employees presented the check to SgtMaj Parks on Monday, October 19.

Mr. Dan Dennis, President of Dennis Corporation, plans to personally accompany SgtMaj Parks to the Memorial. The funds raised will completely cover all expenses for SgtMaj Parks, including air travel, hotel and all associated activities. Since the presentation of the check to SgtMaj Parks, Dennis Corporation employees have created an itinerary for his trip which will be on November 10th and 11th for the Marine Corps Birthday and Veterans Day. While in Washington, SgtMaj Parks will visit the Marine Corps Museum (Quantico, VA), the World War II Memorial, the Iwo Jima Memorial, the Korean War Memorial, and the Vietnam War Memorial.
