2019 Celebration of Heroes

You are invited to join us at Kansas City’s premier event to recognize our community heroes serving veterans.

A keynote address will be given by Mark Nutsch. Mark was the Green Beret Commander of a Special Forces team that embedded with Northern Alliance counterparts to capture Mazar-i-Sharif in the early weeks of Operation Enduring Freedom. It is considered the most successful unconventional warfare campaign in modern history. Mark’s story is featured in the CNN documentary Legion of Brothers, best selling book Horse Soldiers and major motion picture 12-Strong. We are accepting Guardian Award nominations until October 15th and sponsors until November 1st.
