2014 NGS Freedom Award Family Day

The No Greater Sacrifice Foundation (NGS) honored Sapient Government Services (SGS) and General James Mattis (USMC, Ret) on Saturday at the Freedom Award Family Day. The celebration brought together scholarship recipients, their families and guests of all ages to recognize those who serve and their families.

The event took place at President Lincoln’s Cottage on the grounds of the Soldiers’ Home in Washington, D.C. Guests of all ages toured Lincoln’s Cottage, played campfire games, and enjoyed historical and musical performances by re-enactors.

"The Freedom Award is awarded to someone who gives in selfless service to the nation," said Kanon Carlson, the Director of Foundation Operations for No Greater Sacrifice. "The recipients of the award embody five core principles: Freedom, sacrifice, community, patriotism and esteem."

Teresa Bozzelli accepted the award on behalf of SGS for providing over four years of pro-bono strategy, marketing, communications and other consulting services to the organization. As part of the ongoing support, SGS is currently developing a new NGS website that will better reflect their unique mission. This exciting new interface and interactive design is expected to launch later this fall.

The day culminated with remarks from General James Mattis (USMC, Ret) who was recognized for his over 40 years of service. “For all of you who are here, what we stand in awe of is the courage of the men and women of the U.S. military. When you give education, you give a lot of people hope ­­– That’s what No Greater Sacrifice does.”
