ATLANTA – Your Grateful Nation (YGN) will host “Atlanta is Grateful” on November 18 in Atlanta. The day will include three separate events, culminating with an evening cocktail reception featuring YGN Co-Founder, Rob O’Neill.
“There will be something for everyone on November 18,” said Rob Clapper, Executive Director of YGN. “The day will give attendees a chance to interact with the very veterans they are supporting. It will also give them an in-depth look at YGN and how we are accomplishing our mission of placing SOF Vets in corporate America.”
A Global Threat Briefing will take place at the Cook Hall Restaurant in the W Hotel from noon-1:30 p.m. Retired Navy SEAL Commander Dave Sears and Retired Lt. Colonel Tommy Stoner will speak candidly about the threats facing the United States today and how they affect domestic and international business.
The Special Operations Shooting Event begins at 2:30 p.m. at Stoddard’s Range and Guns on Bishop Street. Supporters will have the opportunity to shoot with some of America’s greatest warriors in a controlled environment.
The evening event, Atlanta Is Grateful, will open to VIP guests at 6:30 p.m. and general admission at 7:00 p.m. It will take place at King Plow Arts Center and feature a Special Operation’s mixed-media experience unique to YGN. Guests will get an inside-look at YGN veterans’ lives, from their childhood and decision to enter the military, to their decision to transition out. The night will culminate with a keynote address delivered by Rob O’Neill, YGN Co-Founder and former leader of Navy SEAL Team 6 involved in over 400 missions, including the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in Operation Neptune Spear.
“There are so many incredible supporters of our nation’s Special Operations community in the Atlanta area”, said O’Neill. “We are thankful to them for their support and looking forward to a great day filled with events to continue raising awareness for YGN and the amazing things our veterans can bring to the boardroom.”
