RYE - When Maj. David Klaverkamp of the Marines ships out for Iraq in the fall, his wife and young sons will have a new memory to keep until his return - a day at Playland Amusement Park.

The Klaverkamps were among 1,000 servicemen and women and their families invited for a free day at Playland - barbecue included. It was sponsored by John Blumberg of The Blumberg Group insurance company of White Plains and his staff.

"It's absolutely fantastic for morale," Klaverkamp, currently stationed on Long Island, said after he and his wife had taken their young sons Aedan and Keagan on go-karts. "We're doing something important out there. ... This gives us a sense of solidarity with the community."

"It will be nice for us to have memories, to reflect on this," said his wife, Angela Klaverkamp.

Blumberg organized the "Thanks a Trillion" event, held earlier today, when his office, part of the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, was rewarded by the parent company after Northwestern reached a trillion dollars in insurance.
