An opportunity to recognize and honor our Nation’s veterans, the 7th Annual Symbol of Freedom Event will feature special guest Lieutenant Colonel Michael Strobl of U.S. Marine Corps sharing his moving account of escorting fallen Marine, Lance Corporal Phelps, home.
Mr. Strobls’ story of the spontaneous outpouring of support and respect for the fallen Marine, is certain to move every patriotic citizen in attendance. His story was also made into a movie called “Taking Chance,” starring Kevin Bacon as LtCol Strobl.
This is a two-event series, designed to elevate knowledge of CDM Caregiving Services. These events are centered around Veterans Day to provide an opportunity to recognize and honor our Nation’s veterans. All Proceeds benefit CDM Caregiving Services.
The VIP event on November 1st at 5:30 pm is a more intimate gathering with Lt. Col. Strobl at the Artillery Barracks on the Fort Vancouver National Reserve and offers an opportunity to personally meet their special guest. The ability to have a quick chat, photo or autograph with Mr. Strobl will also be available. This event has limited space and tickets sell out quickly.
The luncheon on November 2nd will be served at WareHouse 23 and will feature motivational words from Mr. Strobl on the kindness and respect given by strangers. Luncheon begins at 11:30 AM doors open for check-in at 11:00 AM.
