US & Canadian Officers Invited to International Armed Forces Dinner May 12

US & Canadian Officers Invited to International Armed Forces Dinner May 12

(EVENT page)


Military officers from the United States, Canada and other Allied nations will hold the 58th Annual International Armed Forces Night Dinner in Troy on Friday, May 12, 2017 at the American Polish Cultural Center.  This long-standing dinner honors the friendship that exists between Allied military officers.  Military officers from all branches of the services and their guests are invited to attend.

A 2016 recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor, Retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel Charles Kettles, will be the keynote speaker and share his insights on aviation and ground combat experienced as a Vietnam helicopter pilot.

“This colorful event is filled with military traditions, music and pageantry,” said LTC. Charles Thornell, U.S. Army Retired, the Chair of this year’s event.  “The 126th Army Band will perform military and dance music; a Scottish piper in full regalia will pipe in the color guard; and vibrant military dress uniforms of the American and Canadian forces will be worn.”

The dinner, an annual event since 1960, is open to all active, reserve and retired military officers and their guests, and alternates yearly between Windsor and Detroit.  It honors those who have served and fallen comrades, from current and past wars.  Additional information:
