Greater Navarre Area Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Council Chairman Tony Hughes during this morning’s chamber breakfast announced that Commander of Air Force Special Operations Command Lt. General Brad Webb will be the featured speaker at a May 18 Military Appreciation Breakfast the chamber is co-hosting with the Navarre Area Board of Realtors.
The event will celebrate National Military Appreciation Month, which was established in 1999 to honor current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, including those who have died in the pursuit of freedom.
“The Navarre Area Board of Realtors is excited to again be co-hosting the Military Appreciation Breakfast with the Greater Navarre Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. This is a prestigious event that affords our members the opportunity to show their respect for, and to hear directly from, local leaders at the very tip of the spear. Every year we receive appreciation from the assembled audience on how much they enjoy the opportunity to network with the business community, and it’s testament to both organizations that so many in uniform see value in attendance,” said NABOR Executive Angela Campbell.
Hughes expects to have twice the number of attendees as last year’s inaugural event.
“All wing commanders will be invited,” Hughes said, pointing out the event coincides with the ending of a Commando Rally.
The breakfast will take place at 7:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 9 at Soundside Club, Hurlburt Field. A limited number of tickets will be available for sale in a couple of weeks, following registration by military and sponsors. Cost will be $15.
