Plan to attend AUSA’s “Right Arm Night” at The Club @ the Boatyard this Thursday, Oct. 20, and see how you can contribute to a dynamic support system for America’s soldiers.
This inspirational event begins at 5:30 p.m. and is sponsored by the local chapter of AUSA, the Association of the United States Army. The local Captain Meriwether Lewis Chapter is teaming up with AUSA Young Professional in organizing this free event featuring two local speakers:
Matthew Griffin — a U.S. military academy graduate and former Army Ranger who was deployed four times to Iraq and Afghanistan. He planned and participated in over 100 special operations between 2003 and 2005. After witnessing the positive effects of economic growth in conflict areas, Griff co-founded Combat Flip Flops with a fellow Ranger and began the mission of manufacturing peace through trade. Hear his compelling story on Tedx Talks Here.
Justin Stiefel — founder of Heritage Distilling Company in Gig Harbor. Hear a story of passion and determination from this business entrepreneur who founded the most awarded craft distillery in North America.
All are welcome to AUSA’s Right Arm Night ~ Thursday, Oct. 20, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at The Club @ the Boatyard ~ Please RSVP to John Guardia at: email@example.com
