Keynote Speaker: Captain Giles R. Norrington, USN (Ret.)

March 16, 2013, 6:00pm
at the Elks Lodge

Navy Lt. Giles Norrington was making his 22nd reconnaissance flight into North Vietnamese territory when communist rebels shot off the right wing of his RA-5C Vigilante. The plane erupted into a fireball. As Norrington and his navigator, Richard Tangeman, tried to escape, Norrington thought, "It's taking a long time to die."

Giles Norrington is a former Marine Infantryman, retired (after 34 years of service) naval aviator who spent 1,775 days as a POW in North Vietnam mostly at the "Hanoi Hilton", author of a number of articles on ethics and military history and spokesperson for POW's and a variety of service organizations including the Salvation Army, executive director of the American Red Cross Chapter in New London Conn., director of the AIDS Service agency in Norfolk, Va., and Vice President of the Rotary Club of Baileys Crossroads in Virginia among others.

Please join us to honor this great American hero on the 40th Anniversary of his release from the Hanoi Hilton and to award Scholarship to this year's winners in memory of Leo C. Chase and Rick Rescorla two other heroes of Vietnam and 9/11.
