Guests were given the opportunity to experience the world through the eyes of a survivor and see how Veteran-focused organizations make a world of difference.
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Last night, government, national and cybersecurity experts and thought leaders came together at Engine Co. 12 in Washington, DC to support military veterans during Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig’s exclusive cocktail party benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP)®.
The cocktail party was held on the first day of the 2019 AUSA Annual Meeting & Exposition. The event featured speaker Sal Gonzalez, who was introduced by both Major General Charlie Fletcher and the CEO of Wounded Warrior Project, Mike Linnington. Sal Gonzalez, a machine gunner for the United States Marine Corps, has received both the Combat Action Ribbon and Purple Heart Award. As a speaker and spokesperson for the Wounded Warrior Project®, during Sal’s remarks, he shared his excruciating journey to recovery and shared how the WWP played a crucial role in his recovery. The Marine Corps Veteran noted that he ultimately found healing through music, which eventually led to his performing on NBC’s America’s Got Talent. He ended his speech by singing his moving tribute, “Heroes”.
Among notable guests in attendance were Col. Gary Corn, JAGC, USA, Staff Judge Advocate for Commander, CYBERCOM; Robert Eatinger, National Security Partner at Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig and former Acting General Counsel for the CIA; Robert Cardillo, former Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency; Andrew Knaggs, candidate, United States House of Representatives (VA-7); and John Whitbeck, candidate, Chairman, Loudoun County Board of Supervisors. In an evening filled with humor, emotion, and patriotism, guests were given the opportunity to experience the world through the eyes of a survivor and see how Veteran-focused organizations are making a world of difference.
