October 28

13hrsThis month we are deviating from our usual business speaker to present a timely presentation from the co-authors of 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really happened in Benghazi.  Mark “Oz” Geist, Kris “Tanto” Paronto & John “Tig” Tiegon, security contractors for the CIA in Lybia, will present their story and answer questions. This story continues to be an ongoing topic of discussion and debate, especially in the Veteran community. It will continue to be a subject that is discussed frequently in the upcoming Presidential election and as such it is the duty of all Veterans to be informed so that we can educate the public on this sensitive issue involving our community. Books will be available purchase as well as an opportunity for the authors to personally autograph attendee’s books.  There are only a few seats left, don’t miss out! Cost to attend this event is $35. Full breakfast provided.

December 2 warriorFor our annual Holiday dinner and fundraiser for ORP we are proud to have as our chosen Veteran charity Warriors Ethos.  Warriors Ethos is a charity that is providing much needed internship and transition opportunities for active duty Military and Veterans.  We are fortunate to have as our keynote speaker former counter-terrorism coordinator in the Reagan administration and host of “War Stories” – the award-winning military documentary series on Fox News Channel, LTCOL Oliver North, USMC, (Ret).  You do not want to miss an opportunity to hear LTCOL North speak of a lifetime of service for our countries and most importantly share in this opportunity to support such a vital organization in Warriors Ethos.
