We Got Your Six is the theme for most of what we do, but it’s especially appropriate for our 6th annual Salute to American Heroes gala. This is our primary fund raiser for our Operation Wounded Care – 100% of the net proceeds go to these programs. 100%.
The Salute gala is a night of patriotism, military pageantry and entertainment.

The US Coast Guard’s Honor Guard Silent Drill Team has accepted our invitation to perform at Salute (barring any unforeseen emergencies or priorities in Washington, DC, or at Arlington Nat’l Military Cemetery.)
This year’s Keynote Speaker is: LTC James “Jim” Browning. LTC Browning, as CO of the 2-508PIR of the 82d ABN DIV, shown center with some of his team in the Spring of 2017, helped free Mosul (Iraq’s 2nd largest city) from ISIS control. He was also an Adoptee of AaSP. He will share some of his stories from the front with our guests! He may also bring a special memento for the auction. And speaking of our auctions, we will have an incredible leather jacket adorned with a painting of the iconic flag raising picture at Ground Zero by Tom Franklin – and signed by Franklin himself! Another spectacular one-of-a-kind item is a signed prop from an intelligence drone (decommissioned) that flew over Kandahar, Afghanistan on July 4th of this year!!!! And check out the 3’x2′ American Flag made of fire hose by volunteer Fire Fighters from Fair Lawn, NJ.
