Are you hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner? How about including a Coalition member or family and share with them the great tradition that showcases the best of America. The Coalition consists of officers from 50 plus nations that serve at Central Command as a unified effort in the War Against Terrorism. They live and work in our country from 3 months to 2 years and though some come with their families many of them do not. The intention of inviting a Coalition member is to thank and welcome them to the Tampa Bay Community so they will return to their country with a better understanding of what makes America great. If you are interested in opening your hearts and your homes for these great people, please complete the form attached and forward to Robert Rowen at robrowen@earthlink.net or by fax to (813) 849-1261.
