Iger, who also made headlines last night when he quit President Trump’s Business Advisory Council, was awarded the Navy SEAL Foundation’s Patriot Award.  According to the report, the award was due, in part to Disney’s “Work Here” campaign which has provided jobs to almost 26,000 returning veterans.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
