We’re only a few weeks away from the Chamber’s November 29 Annual Meeting featuring Medal of Honor Recipient, former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Sal Giunta. Michael Monteferrante is the incoming Chairman of the Board for the Chamber as well as the President, Chief Executive Officer and Director at Envision, Inc. He was instrumental in securing Sal for the event. Monteferrante said, “Sal’s speech will be a goose bump experience that will impact your life. This is a rare opportunity to hear from such a decorated patriot.”
The Medal of Honor is awarded to the nation’s bravest Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen by the President of the United States in the name of Congress. Sal received his medal in 2010 for bravery in battle during his second deployment to Afghanistan while serving as a rifle team leader in the Korengal Valley.
Jack Pulley, Fleet Sales Manager at Davis-Moore Auto Group, is also looking forward to Sal’s presentation, even though he’s already heard him speak on several occasions. “Sal is a true patriot. And this is the perfect occasion for Wichita to honor his bravery as we also welcome the KC-46 to McConnell Air Force Base and celebrate the launch of the Navy’s U.S.S. Wichita in early 2019. He’ll be a fabulous speaker and it will be a very patriotic evening.”
We hope you’ll join us on November 29 to thank Sal Giunta for his heroic actions and learn more about his determination to serve his country and his fellow soldiers. Please plan to bring members of your team, your clients and other business associates who will benefit from his presentation. Special student, military, and Young Professionals of Wichita (YPW) ticketing pricing is available.
