On March 7th in the North Hall of the Von Braun Center is A Salute to Service - Honoring Our Heroes. This event will allow the whole community to learn more about the Semper Fi Community Task Force programs and how they support the community.
Several wounded/injured Veterans and a family of the fallen will share the difference the organization has made in their lives and how they are giving back to the community. The evening's guest speaker will be recent Medal Honor recipient, Retired Army Captain Mike Rose. Also, famous artist Joe Everson will perform "God Bless the USA" while painting a tribute to our Service men and women. The painting will be auctioned off during the night.
(Per Semper Fi Community Task Force website) Sponsors play a valuable role in this event for the Semper Fi Community Task Force of North Alabama. Funds received from the evening will assist the Semper Fi Community Task Force’s ongoing programs, focused on the healing process of our Wounded/Injured Veterans, their caregivers, and the families of our fallen. Sponsorships are now available for the event and include the following levels: Freedom ($7500), Liberty ($5000), Patriot ($2500), Honor ($1250).
In 2006 the Semper Fi Community Task Force of North Alabama started with a small group of Marines, some retired, active and reserve, getting together in Huntsville, Alabama. These veterans had a deep desire to continue being of service to their country after having honorably served their nation in the military and formulated a plan to be of service to the Tennessee Valley/ Northern Alabama community.
