Every year, the community around the city of Virginia Beach and the surrounding military bases celebrate Patriot Festival, with the United Service Organization (USO) using the event to promote the well-being of wounded warriors and their families. This came to be known as Warrior Week. More than 50 Danish wounded-warriors and relatives will be participating this year. This years Warrior Week runs from Monday May 29th through Sunday June 4th, and you can read more about Warrior Week HERE.
As part of the Warrior Week, ADBC will host a reception in honor of the attending Danish veterans. The reception will be hosted in collaboration with USO, local authorities and the local business community at the Sheraton Oceanfront Hotel, with a beautiful view of the beach and in walking-distance of all of the event activities.
The Ambassador will be in attendance, along with both local and Danish dignitaries. Also expected to be in attendance are local industry representatives and stakeholders. We invite all ADBC members to attend and show their support for the veterans, while enjoying the opportunity to do valuable networking.
The reception is Thursday June 1st at 5.30pm at the Sheraton Oceanfront Hotel. Drinks and heavy hors d’oeuvre will be served. The morning following the reception, a visit to Naval Air Station Oceana is planned for members who choose to stay the night.
Members who are interested in more information or are planning on staying the night in Virginia Beach, can receive more information by contacting Christian Frederiksen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
