Black Dagger is again pleased to offer this very unique military-themed event to the general public for the 4th year! Last year’s event sold out fast, with 250 attendees.
This is an event honoring the First Special Service Force (FSSF) better known as the “Devils Brigade” and the special operations forces that have followed in their legacy. After disbanding in Menton France on 5 December 1944, many of the “Forcemen” were sent to Army Ranger units to utilize their special skills.

We have also invited Mae Krier, one of America’s WWII Rosie the Riveters, she has accepted and will be in attendance this year. She was the catalyst for Congress awarding all Rosies the Congressional Gold Medal and recently had some of her Rosie polka dot bandana and facemasks on board the ship that docked with the International Space Station.
Each ticket includes hor d’oeuvres, prime rib dinner, cocktails (open bar), music, and parking. Also, there will be an outside cigar lounge area with cigars, cutters, and lighters.
Sponsorship opportunities are available for this one-of-a-kind uniquely special operations-themed event. No better way to salute these heroes!
