One of our four major events of the year, Salute to Our Heroes, is coming up in less than a month. Held at the Omni Houston Hotel at Westside, this special evening honors the men and women that serve our country. Since Salute to Our Heroes takes place in a few short weeks on February 11th, 2017, purchase your tickets today before they sell out!
Salute to Our Heroes features an evening chock-full of entertainment so we’d like to share some of the highlights with you. The Texas A&M Singing Cadets will make a special appearance! The Aggienizors Barbershop Quartet has played for high-profile folks including past presidents. Another notable moment will be the Missing Man Ceremony which honors our fallen soldiers in all branches of the U.S. military. Salute to Our Heroes would not be complete without our live and silent auctions where some really great items will be up for grabs!
Our keynote speaker at this year’s Salute to Our Heroes will be Kris “Tanto” Paronto. Tanto is a former Army Ranger from 2nd Battalion 75th Ranger Regiment who was deployed throughout South and Central America, the Middle East, and North Africa. Tanto was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. His team’s involvement was essential in the saving of U.S. lives and assets while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex. Their story is the subject of the film 13 Hours featuring John Krasinski.
