My Visit to the Army Navy Country Club

Yesterday, my brother and I attended an Objective Rally Point event with the Alexandria Veteran Business Enterprise Center at the Army Navy Country Club.

We arrived 10 minutes early. Upon entrance there was a very timeless and grand staircase that separated the floors, while simultaneously showcasing the interior of the different levels. Next, after climbing the stairs, hanging up our coats, and being given our name tags from the receptionist, we entered the main banquet room.

In the main banquet room we networked over coffee. After that, breakfast was served and I found a place in line, and filled up my plate with scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes, and fresh fruit. Following finishing breakfast, speakers began their presentations. Some of the speakers that stood out in my memory include a former West Wing actress, who spoke about Veterans courts and Brigadier General Mark S. Martins, who spoke on a range of topics including military history and law. The event was hosted by Fluet Huber Hoang PLCC.
