Award Winning Best Seller ‘Street Fight in Iraq’ Honored in December’s ‘Soldier of Fortune Magazine’


Oceanside, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2007

Lt. Col. Neil Levin USMC, (Ret), CEO and Publisher, Leatherneck Publishing, Div. of Levin Publishing Group, LLC, today announced that Soldier of Fortune Magazine, the elite and definitive publication for the professional military, government, and commercial trooper, honors Leatherneck Publishing in their forthcoming December 2007 issue. It features significant excerpts from this best seller and award winning book. Says Robert K. Brown, Editor/Publisher of Soldier of Fortune, “‘Street Fight in Iraq’ chronicles and exposes what is really going on over there. I felt it necessary to bring this important resource to the attention of our 150,000 readers.” Established in 1975, Soldier of Fortune Magazine is the industry leader in military and protective services publications.

If you wonder what it’s like fighting with the US Marine Corps Expeditionary Forces in Iraq, you are in for a hair raising ride when you read Leatherneck Publishing’s latest book release by Gunnery Sergeant, now 1st Sgt Patrick Tracy. A seasoned 19-year Marine Corps Warrior of many battles, GySgt Tracy takes you second by second on heart pounding, breath stopping missions through the streets of Ramadi seeking out the terrorists who hide in the shadows of inhumanity. Around the next corner awaits a surprise ambush, a massive fire fight or a little child wired for your touch. GySgt Tracy is a master at describing each moment as he lived it. He recorded each event in his personal mission log over a seven month tour of duty in one of the hottest combat zones, Ramadi, Iraq.

“Street Fight in Iraq” relates with great candor the unvarnished realities of dealing with day to day combat in and around Ramadi. You will be shocked, fascinated, outraged and frustrated when you read about the fight for Democracy and Peace in Iraq. This book is about Marines who made the journey to combat and the unbelievable events that followed. Called, “down and dirty,” the language is harsh, the writing brutally honest and the message clear. This is a definite “must read” for military and civilians alike. This book is available directly from Leatherneck Publishing Online Bookstore,

Alvaka Networks’ Executive Kevin McDonald Earns Inaugural AeA, Excellence in Government Advocacy Award


Irvine, Calif. (PRWEB) May 27, 2008

Alvaka Networks’ Executive Vice President Kevin McDonald accepted the 2008 Award for Excellence in Government Advocacy from the AeA Orange County/Inland Empire Council at its 15th annual High-Tech Innovation Awards on April 28, 2008 in front of a sold-out crowd of 400 industry and community leaders. Moving forward, this designation will be known as the Kevin McDonald Excellence in Government Advocacy Award.

“McDonald’s efforts have truly bridged a long-standing gap between industry and legislators at the grassroots level,” said Roxanne Gould, senior vice president, state government affairs, AeA. “The model he created is being replicated across the country. We only wish we could clone him! His passion for political advocacy is obvious to anyone who meets him. He is driven to accomplish impactful action not just talk about it.”

McDonald has spent the past decade striving to achieve a position of influence to protect America’s children. His success as an executive with Alvaka Networks enabled him to gain an audience with some of America’s most influential business, community and government leaders. He is an active officer and member of the nationally prominent boards of AeA and Web Wise Kids, where he has converted that access into positive change and even greater access.

“Kevin’s expertise and absolute commitment to driving positive public policy in the tech sector and in protection of children has led to significant forward thinking and real change,” said Don Hicks, executive director, AeA Orange County/Inland Empire Council. “Kevin has brought a new spark to our political efforts and refocused our imperatives. His energy and strategic abilities are contagious and incredibly positive.”

As part of his efforts, McDonald travels regularly to Washington D.C. and the California state capital, where he works to help frame debates and influence key decisions on technology and child safety issues. A tireless cyber security and Internet safety advocate, McDonald also is the author of the novel, Practically Invisible. McDonald works to balance his advocacy for the interests of the high-tech industry, with his mission to protect America’s children and families from predators.

“I am so completely humbled by this award,” McDonald said. “AeA is a fantastic organization that has been supported by highly dedicated people since 1943. I am driven by a moral imperative and common sense as I simply expand on the efforts of those who make up this incredible organization. Words just can’t describe this amazing honor.”

Georgia’s Attorney General Thurbert Baker Receives First Annual Barack Obama Political Leadership Award From The National Bar Association

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 14, 2009

The National Bar Association (NBA) presented Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker with its first annual Barack Obama Political Leadership Award at its 84th annual meeting in San Diego, California on Friday. The award recognizes Baker’s pioneering achievements as a public servant and elected official.

Baker, a Democrat from Stone Mountain, is Georgia’s first African-American Attorney General, having served in the office since 1997. During this time, he has been the only elected African-American Attorney General in the nation. He is also the only African American to be elected by his colleagues to serve as the president of the 102 year old National Association of Attorneys General.

As Attorney General, Baker has successfully managed the state’s legal affairs for more than two decades. He has always made protecting families and children a top priority. He promoted tough new laws against sexual predators who target children via the Internet, and has aggressively worked with local prosecutors and police to bring those who target children online to justice. Baker has also been a leading voice against domestic violence. He fought to make it a crime to commit an act of domestic violence in the presence of a child and he’s worked with local law enforcement to fight family violence.

Prior to his service as Attorney General, Baker served for five terms in the Georgia House of Representatives, including several years as the Floor Leader for then-Governor Zell Miller. As Floor Leader, Baker led the fight to pass some of the most significant legislation in modern Georgia history, including the institution of the state lottery and the lottery-funded HOPE Scholarship program.

He was the lead sponsor of the largest tax cut in Georgia history -the removal of the state sales tax on groceries. He also led the fight to pass tough new laws against drunk driving, strengthening the state’s notoriously weak, outdated drunk driving laws, and helped bring Georgia to the forefront in the battle against DUI.

“I am humbled and honored to be the first person to receive the National Bar Association’s Barack Obama Award. I hope to live up to the honor by continuing to bring people together to solve the tough problems facing Georgia,” said Attorney General Baker.

The National Bar Association (NBA) was founded in 1925, and is the nation’s oldest and largest national association of predominately African-American lawyers and judges. It has 84 affiliate chapters throughout the United States and affiliations in Canada, the United Kingdom, Africa and the Caribbean. It represents a professional network of over 20,000 lawyers, judges, educators and law students. The objectives of the NBA are “to advance the science of jurisprudence; improve the administration of justice; preserve the independence of the judiciary and to uphold the honor and integrity of the legal profession; to promote professional and social intercourse among the members of the American and the international bars; to promote legislation that will improve the economic condition of all American citizens, regardless of race, sex or creed in their efforts to secure a free and untrammeled use of the franchise guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States; and to protect the civil and political rights of the citizens and residents of the United States.”

Despite Economy, Financial Advisor to Affluent Jeff Christenson Uses Innovative Methods, Team to Preserve Wealth, Build Award Winning Practice


Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 30, 2010

With over fifteen years experience working with high-level clients (successful entrepreneurs, real estate developers and well known entertainers, to name a few), Jeff Christenson knows a thing or two about managing substantial wealth. As the President and Founder of Christenson Wealth Management LLC, a comprehensive, private wealth management firm dealing exclusively with high net-worth clients, Jeff has an unparalleled reputation for assisting individuals and families in achieving their financial goals.

Jeff was recently recognized for his considerable achievements with the Advisor Achievement Award from Multi Financial Securities Corporation (Multi-Financial). This special award was given to Christenson for increasing his business over the last 12 months despite the challenges in the economy.

This is a fitting honor for Jeff, who continues to exemplify what it means to be a successful advisor and a trusted guide for his clients, said Multi-Financial President and CEO Brett Harrison. It was a challenging 12 months, but his efforts produced outstanding results.

This is the second honor for Christenson in the last few months, as he was also recently listed among WORTH Magazines national list of Leading Wealth and Legal Advisors. Christenson contributed multiple full-page editorial features to WORTH as part of the program, which educates the most affluent readers in the United Sates on diverse, sophisticated wealth strategies.

Jeff and his highly accredited team realize that these clients have unique needs, and are solidly committed to meeting and exceeding their objectives. Investment portfolios are customized based on the individual situation of each client. These clients benefit from a variety of investment strategies which can help maximize their return and which can help to keep their money in a safe place.

People dont come to us to make them rich; they come to us help keep them rich.

When someone has serious money, they need a serious money manager. If theyre going to put their trust and their financial assets in someones hands, capability is paramount. Smart, sound strategies and a holistic approach to wealth have helped Christensons clients keep a healthy bottom line, despite disaster in the economy.

It is said that 80% of money managers cant beat the S&P 500, and theyre probably right. On the other hand, that means 20% do, and those managers are where we focus our attention and efforts, looking for ways to shepherd wealth with partners who have a proven track record of performance and integrity. My clients demand the best results with the lowest risk, and thats what I look for every day.

Christenson also provides his clients with special access to a unique team of top-tier professionals with national reputations to help his clients preserve their wealth in related and often overlooked areas including Asset Protection, estate planning and life insurance needs, executive compensation and business succession planning and many other areas of concern to clients in his demographic. I cant be an expert at everything, but I can assemble a team of experts, and thats been part of our success. Investment performance is for naught if my clients lose money to a lawsuit, estate taxes or other sources of spoilage. We try to make sure they have all the expert resources they need, says Christenson, who also regularly partners with other advisors across the country to help them bring the same level of service and these innovative strategies to their own clients.

Christenson is a resident of Paradise Valley, Arizona with his unbelievably supportive wife and their two children, a four-year-old daughter and a one-year-old son. He also serves on the Board of Directors for national child abuse prevention and treatment group Child Help USA, a cause he describes as one of the greatest joys of his life. Its an honor which came through his professional career just another reason to love the business. My clients are the greatest people in the world, Jeff says, Literally.
