About Colonel Michael Endres (1964-2012)
Colonel Michael Endres was a highly decorated 26 year veteran of the US Army and the director of the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative (MSI) when he passed away suddenly in Dallas, TX in 2012 at the young age of 48. President George W. Bush said, “It was a privilege to know Michael. I was impressed by his love of family and country, his integrity and enthusiasm, and his commitment to the cause of freedom. He was an important member of our team and friend who will be dearly missed.” Colonel Endres served in both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. As director of the MSI, Colonel Endres managed the Team 43 100k Bike Ride and Warrior Golf Open in which President Bush rides and plays with Wounded Warriors. He worked closely with many service organizations that benefit injured service members and their families. While on active duty Colonel Endres led his battalion in the building of a home for a member of their unit who was paralyzed in Iraq. Their efforts were featured on the TV show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. Colonel Endres’ wife, Cheryl participated in the ASF ski instructor training while they were stationed at the United States Military Academy at West Point. She continues to be an advocate for military service members, veterans and their families.
Colonel Endres’ wife, Cheryl, daughter Taylor (a second year cadet at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point) and Michael’s longtime friend Vince Passione have generously donated this vacation week at Massanutten Resort to benefit the ASF.
