    Event Description:
    Join the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce for the annual Salute to the Military Luncheon presented by Walmart, featuring Keynote Speaker Florent "Flo" Groberg.   

    On August 8, 2012, Florent was on his second deployment to Afghanistan when he made a split-second decision that prevented greater catastrophe and changed his life forever. His selfless display of courage in tackling a suicide bomber while protecting a command team on that fateful day earned him the Medal of Honor, and the distinction as the 10th living American to receive the nation’s top award for valor in combat since the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Today, as director of veteran’s outreach at Boeing and LinkedIn’s veteran’s program spokesperson, he is a powerful and prominent advocate for veterans’ issues.  Click here to read more about Florent!
