The Denton [Amendment] Program enables registered (501(c)3 charities to use US military aircraft to transport relief aid to those in need throughout the world; this aid is transported “space available” and free of charge. OKF enables GPUSA membership to serve as advocates in connecting and guiding local charitable organizations to strategic airlift components administered by the Department of Defense (DoD), Department of State (DoS), U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) through the Denton [Amendment] Program office in Charleston, SC.

The Priories of St. John the Baptist, St. Norbert and St. Mother Theodore Guerin know how to plan a great event! From the Knight's Bar/ Mader’s Restaurant to the Bikes, Brats & Beer tour all the way through the Grand C&I Ceremony and OSMTH GMC we all had fun! Some serious work ensued-but see for yourself through the lens of Robert Holmes and Michael Ann Robinson.
