– November 11, 2016 –
On this Veteran’s Day, we honor and salute our nation’s heroes – our Veterans. May we never take for granted the sacrifice and courage given by the men and women of our nation’s Armed Forces who have served to protect our peace and freedom.
We’d also like to pay a special thanks to our CEO, Garth Flint. Garth is Vietnam Veteran, who flew F-4 fighter jets for the U.S. Navy while assigned to several carriers, including the U.S.S. Coral Sea. In late 1967, right after Christmas, his recon plane was shot down over Haiphong on the Gulf of Tonkin by a North Vietnamese AAA anti-aircraft gun. We are especially grateful to Garth’s rescue team (the U.S. Marines!) and the many years we have been given to learn from his wisdom and unwavering ethical character.
May you and your family have a wonderful Veteran’s Day.
All of us from Beacon Pointe
