The formation of Roots for Boots began at a sports signing event where an enthusiastic educator met a Marine motivator and discovered common interests. Christy Lucas was serving as Principal of Annunciation B.V.M. School in McSherrystown, Pennsylvania where she used that platform each school day to model for students virtues, patriotism, love of country and respect for our veterans and military. Sonny Tannan, a United States Marine with a background in business development, always had a passion for giving back and serving not only his country, but his community as well.  As Christy searched, unsuccessfully, for an organization to assist servicemen and women in a more hands on way, it was at a school  Veterans Day assembly that Sonny posed the question … Why don’t you start your own thing?  It was at that moment that Christy realized she would be stepping down as Principal in order to devote her time to creating a non-profit that involved community support and provided direct assistance to our military heroes and their families.
