Offit Kurman Attorney Organizes Warriors Ethos Fundraiser to Benefit Veterans
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tysons Corner, VA—Monday December 8, 2014
Each month, Offit Kurman attorney organizes Objective Rally Point (ORP), a networking group where Veterans in business assemble. On Dec 2, Offit Kurman Attorneys At Law hosted an extraordinary event held at The Army Navy Country Club which brought together local business leaders and Veterans for a fundraiser to benefit Warriors Ethos. The evening featured several notable guest speakers:
The evening featured several notable guest speakers: Warrors Ethos founder and Veteran Jared Shepard spoke passionately about his organization’s vision and mission. A certified 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Warriors Ethos is dedicated to providing assistance in the career planning, professional development, and placement of Wounded Service Members, Veterans, and their families throughout their transition into the work force. Aside from his involvement in Warriors Ethos, Mr. Shepard is also President and CEO of Intelligent Waves, LLC: a Veteran-owned information technology company, and one of the fundraiser’s title sponsors. Mr. Shepard then introduced Antonio Turner, a wounded Veteran and Warriors Ethos beneficiary, who spoke about how Warriors Ethos taught him advanced computer networking and programming skills and helped place him with his first company after his service in the military.
The evening’s honored guest speaker was Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, USMC (Ret.). Lt. Col. North’s invigorating speech touched on what his years of service in the military meant to him and his family, the need for more military service members, and the threats that endanger our country today. Mr. North accompanied his presentation with pictures of his travels—from his years under the Reagan administration to his current Fox News assignments in Iraq and Afghanistan. Other festivities included cocktails and networking, a silent auction, and music by The George Washington Troubadours—an award-winning a capella group that sang a mix of holiday and pop classics.
If you are a Veteran in business, or work for a company looking for Veteran-owned businesses to team up with, don’t miss the next Objective Rally Point breakfast on January 27th at the Army and Navy club.
