Please join us as Hope For The Warriors® hosts the Got Heart Give Hope® Celebration in Washington, D.C. on 4 November, 2015. This year we honor "Women who Inspire through Service" - as service members and veterans, civilians and caregivers, focusing on the HOPE they instill through their remarkable stories and service.
On behalf of the Got Heart, Give Hope® Celebration honorary chairs and committee members we would like for you to join us in honoring this year’s Keynote Speaker: Major Heather Penney (USAF). Major Penney was an F16 pilot in the 121st Fighter Squadron on Andrews AFB, MD for over 10 years. During the 9/11 terrorist attacks, she served as one of two combat pilots ordered to down United Airlines Flight 93 heading toward Washington, DC. The mission could only be carried out by ramming the plane with the fighter jets, however passengers on the flight attempted to take control of the aircraft, ending the mission. Heather continues to fly in the Air National Guard in the 201st Airlift Squadron as an instructor pilot and aircraft commander. Currently, she is the Director of USAF Air Superiority Systems at Lockheed Martin Aeronautics. Hope For The Warriors® is honored to have Heather join us in our celebration of women who serve.
Please RSVP by October 29, 2015.
