The 2009 Week of the Eagles
A gathering of present and former soldiers of the famed 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) takes place 13-20 August, 2009, Ft. Campbell, Kentucky.
One of the events is a formal dinner, called the Gertsch Dining-Out, where members of the Division and civilian supporters are able to intermingle for a night of mutual appreciation.
This 1000 person dinner is paid for strictly by ticket sales that participants must pay out of pocket.
Ticket cost are typically about $30 per ticket. This cost can be difficult on any soldier, but especially junior soldiers who would like to attend.
If your city would like to sponsor soldier attendance, please send a check or money order to the Gertsch Dining-Out point of contact and ASA board member, Mr. Brent Holman, who will ensure your adopted unit is represented at this gala event.
Make checks payable to:
2009 Gertsch Dining-Out. In the memo section, write the unit you are supporting. If funds raised for a specific unit exceed that units ticket allocation, excess funds will be placed in a general fund to support other soldiers to attend the dinner.
