Marine Parents Outreach Dinner Saturday, October 29, 2011 at the Courtyard by Marriott, Columbia, MO
Dress is business casual. There will be a cash bar.
Showcasing the MarineParents Purple Heart Hero Support™ initiative, our featured speaker will be Marine Gunnery Sergeant Nick Popaditch.
“Gunny Pop”, while commanding his M1A1 tank, “Bonecrusher”, in the Battle for Fallujah in 2004, was struck in the back of his helmet by a rocket propelled grenade (RPG). Having sustained life-threatening injuries, “Gunny” continued to command his tank until they reached safety. Following exhaustive rehabilitation and being medically discharged, Gunny Pop struggled to overcome the disabilities caused by his injuries while continuing to support his family. Come hear how Marine Corps mentality of "improvise, adapt and overcome" enabled this Silver Star recipient to prosper despite the handicaps resultant of brutal head injuries. He will also be signing copies of his book, Once A Marine.
For reservations, contact Marine Parents corporate office (573) 449-2003 ext. 1.
