Come help us celebrate the 244th Birthday
of the United States Army
and the 20th Anniversary of the
Greater Kansas City Chapter of the
Association of the United States Army
on Saturday, June 15 at the
Count Basie Ballroom,
KC Marriott Downtown Hotel
(200 W 12th St, Kansas City, Mo. 64105).
We will begin our evening with a reception at 5:45 p.m., followed by a program filled with pride, patriotism and respect for an institution that is older than the nation itself. We will honor the men and women who serve and have served, as well as recognize the sacrifices of those Soldiers and their families who have given their all. We will also recognize the 20th Anniversary of the Greater Kansas City Chapter of AUSA.
Our keynote speaker for the evening is Gen. (Ret.) Carter F. Ham, former commanding general of the Big Red One at Fort Riley, Kansas, U.S. Army Europe and U.S. Army Africa. Gen. (Ret.) Ham is currently the president and chief executive officer of the Association of the U.S. Army.
As part of our celebration we will also present Mr. Morrill Worcester with the Colonel Roger H.C. Donlon Patriot Award for his contributions to military veterans and families as the founder of the Wreaths Across America, the non-profit organization that honors the memory and the gravesites of fallen veterans every December.
As an additional treat, performing our national anthem and during the dinner will be Steve Amerson, a man known as “America’s Tenor.” Amerson has performed with major symphonies across the U.S. and abroad, and whose voice can be heard in numerous movie and television productions. He also routinely performs for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and Society in their events around the country. Amerson’s participation is sponsored by Gary Sinise Foundation, the first recipient of the Donlon Patriot Award.
