"Honorary Commanders are invited to attend base functions and include their host unit commander in community and organization functions," said Bridget V. Gigliotti, Colonel, USAF Commander at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-
Conaty is a board member with the American Red Cross of the Jersey Coast and Treasurer for The CSM Robert Gallagher Charitable Foundation, which was formed to honor Conaty's uncle, who was an Army Ranger, and to support local veterans. "I was thrilled to be selected to the program because our nation's military has always fascinated me and I have always had tremendous respect for what our military personnel do," said Conaty. "This opportunity also gives me the chance to better understand how the surrounding communities support the JB MDL and what a mutually beneficial experience it is for the military, as well as our local economies and communities."
Conaty has been a member of the HFA team for over 15 years. He has experience in construction and real estate development, governmental authorities, utility authorities and not-for-profit entities. His areas of expertise include auditing, consulting, forensic accounting, financial statement audits and single audits.
Conaty's passion for helping others has become part of HFA's culture. "I hope to share my experiences and the lessons I learn with my clients and the community to help educate people on the activities of the JB MDL," he said. "I have also had discussions with the unit commander to which I'm assigned about having some of the airmen to the [HFA] office to learn more about what I do in order to educate them about opportunities available to them outside of the military."
