MTIA Supports TSgt Vila Family

On 12 November 2017, TSgt Donny Vila earned his angel wings in heaven and with that, he left behind a loving wife, Stephanie Vila and two very young sons, Uriah (5) and Connor (2).
Donny was born in Lima, Peru and grew up in Ocean Springs, Florida.  He enlisted in the US Air Force in October 2001 and most recently was selected by his leadership to serve as a Air Force Basic Military Training Instructor....a extremely coveted career in which only the best of the best are selected to transform civilians into our newest Air Force members.  TSgt Vila dedicated his life to his family and his country and faithfully served in the USAF for 16 years.
As military members, we are extremely grateful for our benefits, in fact, all of TSgt Vila's funeral arrangements have been taken care of.  However, our goal is to bless the Vila family with funds for Uriah and Connor's future.  As most of us work an entire lifetime to get our kids through college, support future wedding dates, and/or buy our kids their first car.  The dream we have for the funds raised is to ease these responsibilities just a bit and provide the resources we know Donny wanted for his children.
All funds donated will be split in half and deposited into trust funds for each of the kids.
On behalf of a loving family missing their son, husband,  and father and a military community missing the wingmanship of a true professional, we say thank you for your support and donation.
