Texas Governor Rick Perry will be the featured speaker for a black-tie gala on December 5, 2014 in Plano, TX.
Governor Perry will honor Sergeant R.V. Burgin for his service to this country during World War II. Sergeant Burgin is the co-author of “Islands of the Damned: A Marine at War in the Pacific” which was used for the HBO mini-series “The Pacific”.
The evening will be filled with patriotic events honoring those who served. All proceeds will support wounded and homeless veterans through the Dallas Veterans Resource Center and Warrior City in Plano, Texas. Both are IRS approved 501c3 charities. All donations are tax deductible.
