The annual True Grit banquet will be Tuesday, May 12, at Fountain Head Country Club at 6 p.m.
The keynote speaker will be U.S. Army Maj. David M. Rozelle, who is believed to be the first amputee in U.S. military history to return to active duty and take combat command in a war zone.
His memoir "Back in Action: An American Soldier's Story of Courage, Faith, and Fortitude" tells his inspiring story.
Rozelle has been awarded the Bronze Star with Valor and the Purple Heart.
He recently served as administrator for the Amputee Care Center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and as an aide for the U.S. surgeon general.
He is getting ready to deploy with his third combat tour to Iraq/Afghanistan, following completion of command-school training at Quantico, Va. He is married and has two children.
