AUSA Senior Fellow CSM Jimmie Spencer was our Keynote Speaker for the evening who provided the Presidential Proclamation and a Commemorative pin to Vietnam Veterans. Additionally, we had a local College representative who also provided a brief as to the benefits of military service and how experience could transfer to college level credit. Our Dinner also included the opportunity to speak about what AUSA is and what our Chapter does here within the Las Vegas Community, informing some of our civilian guests as to our value.
