On behalf of Major General Thaddeus J. Martin, Adjutant General, Connecticut Military Department, you are cordially invited to attend the 69th Annual Connecticut Armed Forces Day Luncheon.
The luncheon will be Friday, May 18th, 2018, at the Aqua Turf Club, 556 Mulberry Street, Southington, Connecticut. The social hour begins at 11:00 a.m. and lunch will be served at noon. The cost for this year’s event is $30.00 per person.
Armed Forces Day is a national observance in the United States, celebrated annually on the third Saturday of May each year. Americans celebrate Armed Forces Day in many ways, honoring all Americans who have and are serving in our armed forces: Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard and their Reserve Components.
Connecticut’s tradition is the Armed Forces Day Luncheon. Each year, Connecticut’s military, veteran, civic and business community attend the Armed Forces Day Luncheon to celebrate military service and to honor the hundreds of thousands of Connecticut citizens and residents who serve or have served our great State and Nation. Traditionally this annual event has provided an excellent atmosphere of camaraderie and this year promises to be no exception.
This year’s keynote speaker, Brigadier General Jeffrey W. Drushal, Chief of the U. S. Army Transportation Corps, will discuss contemporary issues, and present awards to honor exemplary service members from each Service’s Reserve Component in Connecticut.
