Where were you when you heard the news about the death of bin Laden? I was in Jamaica, at the time, and every TV at our resort was on the news watching President Obama's statement about the military operation resulting in the death of the world's most wanted figure.

Following that event, Seal Team Six became a household name and the story of legend. Then, late in 2014, Fox News aired a story that identified the man who fired the fatal shot - Robert O'Neill.

O'Neill, along with Major Ed Pulido and Ginger Ravella, will speak to an all-ages audience at the Taylor County Expo Center on Thursday, April 18th at 7:00pm. The event will benefit Junior Folds of Honor.

According to the press release...

This event is purposed to educate our youth along with the rest of us on the sacrifices that have been made to give us the freedoms cherish daily. [Taylor County Expo Center]

Pulido is a retired Army Major who is the Senior VP of the Folds of Honor Foundation, which is a Veteran’s charity which provides the spouses and children of the fallen and wounded educational scholarships.

Ravella is a Gold-Star Wife, author, and Director of the Speakers Bureau for Folds of Honor. Her late husband gave his life while serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom. Their story made headlines when his remains were stolen by the enemy which led to an incredible story of recovery which was unprecedented in the history of our military.

Tickets start as low as $10 and can be purchased at the Expo Center box office or online here.
