The Aventura Marketing Council (AMC) has a long history of working with the military, and over the years, AMC members have had an opportunity to see first-hand the different military branches and experience VIP tours, thanks to Peter Caspari, Florida Outreach Chairman for the Dept. of Defense, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve.
Recently, the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Wasp was in town for Broward Navy Days, and AMC Chairman Cliff Schulman of Weiss Serota Helfman along with Kevin Shacter of Northern Trust were invited to participate. Kevin was able to invite his two children, Molly and Jack , who could only grin from ear to ear as they toured the U.S.S. Wasp and sat at the controls of a Black Hawk chopper on the deck of the ship that was docked at Port Everglades along with other ships.
“Spending the day on the ship with the Navy and Marine crew was a great experience,” said Schulman. “But most importantly, the ship is nothing without our finest men and women in uniform, who leave their families for long tours of duty to protect us and our country every day.”
