Veterans Banquet | November 7, 2016
All our Armed Services Veterans and First Responders are cordially invited to be our guests at a special banquet and concert at the International ALERT Academy in Big Sandy on November 7, 2016.
It is our privilege to recognize those who have served in our Armed Forces. Throughout all of human history, no group of people has spent more time, done more good, and made greater sacrifices for the furtherance of freedom around the world than American Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Guardians, and Airmen. We would like to honor those who have stood strong to preserve our freedoms in the United States of America. We also want to recognize those public servants on the front lines as First Responders who dedicate their lives for our safety.
The evening will begin at 6:30 PM with a formal dinner served by students from the ALERT Academy. Immediately following the banquet will be an evening of patriotic songs and spiritual hymns sung by the acclaimed ALERT Chorale, along with a special keynote address given by Mark Vogl, a former Army combat arms officer, college professor, political aide, and author.
Reservations are required, but there is no charge to attend. Veterans, First Responders and immediate family members only please, as seating is limited.
Please note that reservations will not be accepted after 5:00 PM CST on Friday, November 4. If you have further questions, please contact us at 903-636-2000 ext. 2101.
