Join us as we honor all who are serving or have served in our US Armed Forces. This year, we have the honor of being joined by Admiral Vern Clark. Admiral Clark completed a distinguished 37-year Navy career in 2005. His Navy experience spans his early days in destroyers, command of a Patrol Gunboat as a Lieutenant and concluding in the halls of the Pentagon as the Chief of Naval Operations and a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In between, his career is distinguished by serving over 50% of his career in command which included three ships, two destroyer squadrons, the Atlantic Fleet’s Anti-Submarine Warfare Training Center, a Carrier Battle Group, the Second Fleet, NATO’s Striking Fleet, and the U.S. Atlantic Fleet.
Admiral Clark received numerous military decorations including four awards of the Defense Distinguished Service Medal, three Navy Distinguished Service Medals, three awards of the Legion of Merit, Distinguished Service Medals from Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, and international awards received from Germany, Italy, France, South Korea, Japan, Portugal, Singapore, and the Netherlands and various other campaign and service awards. In retirement he has been honored with the Eisenhower Award from BENS, the Business Executives for National Security, the Distinguished Sea Service Award from the Naval Order of the United States, and the Distinguished Service Medal of the Military Order of the World Wars.
This is always a beautiful service with special surprises. We are also excited to invite all our military and their families to a special reception after our 6PM service.
We ask that all military members come in dress uniform for our 6pm service.
