November 6 – Michigan Military Veterans Gala at Selfridge Air National Guard Base
Harrison Township, MI – Michigan will be holding its first Military and Veterans Gala on November 6, a formal event designed to celebrate members of the Michigan National Guard, our state’s veterans and the advocates who support both groups.
The gala is hosted in conjunction with the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs’ annual leadership conference at Selfridge Air National Guard Base at 44875 N. Jefferson Ave. at Harrison Township. The gala will allow conference attendees to join with members of the public in celebrating and recognizing our current and past military personnel.
“We are delighted to host this inaugural event which is recognition of the important contribution of the Michigan National Guard and our state’s veterans in our efforts to defend the homeland and support so many aspects of our daily lives here at Michigan, “said US Army Major-General Paul D. Rogers, adjutant general and director of the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs.
“It is important to recognize and honor our veterans for their sacrifice to our country,” Adams said. “This inaugural event brings together members of the military and veteran communities to showcase and celebrate our ‘life membership’ philosophy here in Michigan. “
In addition to music, dancing and food, the evening will feature awards in ten categories, including Veterans Volunteer of the Year, Veteran Education Lawyer of the Year and Citizen Warrior of the Year, honoring a member of the National Guard.
Tickets cost $ 50 and can be purchased on Eventbrite. The event is open to the public. To facilitate the customs clearance process, all tickets must be purchased by October 15th. Please note that this is an adults only event.
