November 7– November 13
The Semper Fi Community Task Force (SFCTF) of North Alabama is proud to announce it is hosting the 12th Annual Heroes Week, to be conducted 7-13th November 2018. The SFCTF all volunteer staff is excitedly expecting 30 wounded or injured service members, along with their spouse or caregiver. These service members represent all 5 branches of the military, and will come from all over the country to enjoy a week of relaxation and recognition. Due to wounds or injuries, many never experienced the Welcome Home celebration that was due them. Our guests will be honored with Welcome Ceremonies at the HSV airport and the Westin Hotel, a fishing tournament with professional bass fishermen, a Veterans’ Day breakfast and parade, the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, an opportunity to visit and speak at local schools, a parade of boats on Lake Guntersville, an aerial tour of North Alabama, as well as numerous lunches and dinners hosted by local organizations and businesses. Heroes Week provides a unique opportunity for the Tennessee Valley / Northern Alabama Community to show its deep appreciation and recognition to these men and women for their humbling sacrifices while defending our Nation, and the freedoms we enjoy each day.
*There are several events that the community and media are welcomed to attend.
