Stars & Stripes Luncheon and Red-Carpet Movie Premiere!
Sons of the Flag is marking our “10-Year Anniversary”! We hope you will celebrate with us!
This year, we are privileged to have Teal and Annie Griffeth as our Chairmen, and Guy and Louise Griffeth as our Honorary Chairmen.
We are excited to present the 2022 Stars and Stripes Luncheon and Red-Carpet Event benefiting Sons of the Flag. For those of you that are already friends of Sons of the Flag, you know that our organization was founded in 2012 by former Navy SEAL, Ryan “Birdman” Parrott, in response to learning of minimal advancements in burn care advancements since the Vietnam Era.
Today, Sons of the Flag is revolutionizing burn care and quality of life for veterans, first responders, and families. Some of our programs include funding burn fellowships at UT Southwestern and Parkland Hospital, a surgical program called Mission: Reconstruct Freedom, capital funding for burn unit equipment, fire prevention, and direct burn survivor support.
Please mark your calendars for our fabulous luncheon to be held on Monday, November 7 at Dallas Country Club.
The Luncheon will take place on Monday, November 7, 2022, at Dallas Country Club, and we are excited to announce an incredibly special line-up as our collective keynote speakers. In our midst, will be heroes from “The Greatest Generation”. We cannot tell you how thrilled and blessed we are to have veterans representing every war since WWII, to tell their collective stories of battle and heroism. We are so excited to announce that two of our speakers are from WWII! We cannot wait to include them in our anniversary celebration to honor all veterans and their sacrifice.
Thomas DeCarlo and Peter Bielskis – WWII, Jim Nicholson and Doyle Vergon – Korea, Dennis Bielskis and Gary Lane – Vietnam, Gary Tanner – Cold War, Jon Hyman – Persian Gulf, Leroy Petry – Afghanistan, and FDNY 9/11 Firefighter, John Walters III.
A Special Benefit included in most sponsorship levels are movie passes to the Red-Carpet Movie Premiere and Patron Party on that prior evening, Sunday, November 6 at the SMU Meadows Museum.
We truly appreciate our donors for making these Burn Survivor programs possible through their generous gifts.
