After receiving a retail sales circular via email on December 4, 2015 entitled ‘21 Days of Christmas Savings’, MRFF Founder/President (and U.S. Air Force Academy graduate) Mikey Weinstein contacted the U.S. Air Force Academy Association of Graduates to request a basic and obvious correction (see below).  Rather than promoting retail sales for a singular religious holiday, Mikey suggested that it would be much more appropriate to promote retail sales to USAFA’s non-Christian graduates as well by renaming their sales circular the ’21 Days of Holiday Savings’.  On December 7, 2015, the Executive Vice President of the USAFA Association of Graduates agreed in an email reply stating “You are right. We’ll change it in subsequent ads”.
