I just returned to Washington, DC from a trip to New York City, where the SLDN team and I met with our planning committee for the upcoming event, "Celebrating Our Heroes." The event will feature former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, and will be a celebration of the first anniversary of the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
But the event is more than that. It's also an opportunity to honor all of the men and women serving in our armed forces - as well as our veterans - and recognize their commitment to this nation's enduring values - freedom, independence, and yes, equality.
I can tell you after meeting with our planning committee in New York that you do not want to miss this event. It promises to be a spectacular, star-studded evening worthy of this historic and emotional occasion.
SLDN and our partners at OutServe look forward to seeing you there, along with our inaugural sponsors making this event possible - UBS, Verizon, BNY Mellon, CitiBank, Winston & Strawn, LLP, and the Interbank Roundtable Committee.
Space on the Intrepid is limited. Get your tickets today before they sell out.
