A truly unique event honoring the 75th Anniversary of the deactivation of the First Special Service Force (FSSF) better known as the “Devils Brigade.” Guest Speaker, CSM (R) Rick Lamb SF, will guide us in better understanding the details of this unique American and Canadian “band of brothers” who fought Nazi Germany, deep behind enemy lines.

Additionally, we will have a special guest, Mae Krier, one of America’s original “Rosie the Riveters” joining us for the evening. She will share a few of her life experiences surrounding WWII.
Each ticket include dinner, cigars, cocktails, music, parking, and one chance at a special drawing. The special drawing will be a framed American Flag flown and jumped into the 75th Anniversary of D-Day in Normandy France by the Guest speaker. The flag comes with sand from Omaha beach, a commemorative D-Day coin, and a certificate of authenticity. Truly a one-of-a-kind memento.
DRESS: Florida business attire (dressy but not formal, ties OK), WWII era uniforms, 1940s vintage attire, or come dressed as a “Rosie” to honor Mae and the women who fueled the war machine in the factories across our great Nation!
