Veterans in Media & Entertainment presents WE GO ANYWHERE: From Fort Bragg, NC to the Middle East, a Military Guest Speakers & Letter-Writing Session featuring the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade (soldiers + family members) on Tuesday, May 18th, 3pm Eastern Time/12pm Pacific Time. This is a Lunch & Learn format featuring a Military Guest Speaker sharing mission stories followed by a breakout session for writing letters.
Brigade Mission: Based at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, the mission of the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade is to rapidly deploy whenever the United States calls on them. They have many important missions, from providing air support to troops in contact, reconnaissance missions, and MEDEVAC support. This is the emergency aviation response to America’s Global Response Force. Participants will hear from a Soldier in the Middle East and from his wife back in North Carolina and how they overcome the challenges of constant deployment.
Letters Mission: Thank our Soldiers of the 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade (CAB) for their willingness to deploy at a moment’s notice providing combat to medical support. We also want to thank their family members who have to go it alone while their spouses often serve multiple deployments abroad.
