American Hero dinner to raise funds for veterans
The name Marcus Lattrell has become familiar across the land. The Navy Cross recipient for his heroism in Afghanistan during a battle with the Talban that took the lives of his complete Navy Seal Team and left him the lone survivor, now memorialized with a movie and a bestselling book by the same name.
Lattrell will be in Mapleton May 17th at a gala dinner and fundraiser at the residence of Tom Mower. The celebrity packed event will feature Lattrell, Governor Herbert, Senator Hatch and others gathered together to pay their respects to those who wear our nations uniforms into battle and thank them for the great sacrifices they and their families have paid.
“Proceeds from this event will benefit veterans throughout the state”, states Master Gunnery Sergeant Alan Truesdale, founder of Sportsmen for Warriors, a local nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide opportunity and assistance for Utah’s veterans. “For us to be involved in this great effort to assist our wounded warriors is extremely gratifying”. Gunny Truesdale continued.
