The USO of North Carolina’s Second Annual Force Behind the Forces Power Lunch is an opportunity for Charlotte business and community leaders to come together in support of those who serve.
The event features keynote speaker Lieutenant General Michael Ferriter, President & CEO of the National Veterans War Memorial, former U.S. Army Infantry Commanding General, Deputy Commanding General U.S. Forces Iraq, and National Defense Fellow, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy. Lt. Gen. Ferriter will discuss the situation of today’s military, needs and opportunities to show support.
Dr. Kimberly Vaughn, Gold Star Wife of Aaron Vaughn, member of SEAL Team Six, will attend as our honored guest, and attendees will enjoy a special performance from the USO Show Troupe.
Funds raised will support the USO of North Carolina, a nonprofit organization that strengthens America’s service members by connecting them to family, home and country. Through critical programs and services, the USO of NC provides nearly 600,000 service connections to military members and their families each year.
