Saluting Norfolk’s Service Men and Women

On July 26, we spent the afternoon saluting Norfolk’s military service men and women at our Military Recognition Reception. Our keynote speaker, Captain Janet Days, Commanding Officer for Naval Station Norfolk addressed the room of military heroes and business professionals to provide words of wisdom and gratitude to our honorees. Captain Days shared that Hampton Roads is a vital part of the military community by stating, “Hampton Roads is our home away from home and the community here makes us feel at home.”

We would like to congratulate all of our Military Recognition Reception honorees and thank them for their great service to our region and country.

Congratulations to:
