a time of sharing, good food & cheer
a special Eagle Group holiday event for veterans and family
The above photo, depicting a U.S. soldier placing a small centerpiece in preparation for Christmas dinner with Ukrainian soldiers, was taken at the Yavoriv Combat Training Center in Yavoriv, Ukraine, Dec. 25, 2017. There, more than 220 of the 27th Infantry Brigade's soldiers were deployed to the Ukraine to train alongside the Ukrainian Army. U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Alexander Rector.
Each year at this time, Eagle Group has made a tradition of celebrating the holiday season with the camaraderie of other veterans and family members. This year promises to be a little more special through the camaraderie of new members, including a few veterans of allied partners. In addition, the folks at Sodexo, Cargill's in-house caterer, will prepare a festve spread. For veterans, this is an event not to be missed.
We will begin our meeting with social time at 5:30 p.m. when food and refreshments await. At an appropriate time, we will take our places in the meeting room. The program will end at or about 8:00 p.m, but the networking will continue.
• PLEASE pre-register by 1:00 p.m. on Friday, Dec 14 (by doing so, you will be you pre-registered on the security list and it will help organizers plan for enough space and food).
• At the event: when you arrive, sign-in at Cargill Security Bldg 9320.
• For corporate supporters (e.g. employers and recruiters) interested in attending, your company's service veterans are welcome, but we kindly ask that you honor our desire for the December meeting to be an exclusively service veteran and family event. We encourage you to rejoin us in January for another great event. We definitely value your support.
Don't wait... please register now, and plan to join us as we honor, network and share in the great camaraderie that is unique among veterans and our families!
