JEREMIAH PAULEY (WWP)-VIP EVENT GUEST SPEAKER
We are pleased and honored to announce that inspirational Wounded Warrior spokesperson, Mr. Jeremiah Pauley will be the featured guest speaker at the 2019 Northville Food & Wine Festival VIP / Gala Dinner to be held at Cantoro's Italian Market & Trattoria on Friday, September 6th, 2019.
Jeremiah Pauley comes from the blue-collar town of Massillon, Ohio, where high school football is so popular on Friday nights you can hear the roar of the crowd from miles away.
He’s proud to have served his country for 11 years in the United States Army. His journey in the airborne infantry ultimately took him to Tal Afar, Iraq, where he was injured by a roadside bomb.
Due to his wounds, Jeremiah was medically retired from the Army in 2007 as a staff sergeant. His awards include the Purple Heart and Combat Infantry Badge. Jeremiah’s story is one of turning negative events into positive actions that serve others. And he’ll no doubt tell you about the biggest inspirations in his life – the happy smiles of his two children who love their dad.
Mr. Pauley will be presenting stories from his experiences throughout his Military career, the trials and tribulations that he continues to overcome on a daily basis, and how the Wounded Warrior Project continues to assist him and other men and women who return from combat zones in integrating back into civilian life across the country.
Please welcome Mr. Jeremiah Pauley.
Every warrior has a next mission. We know that the transition to civilian life is a journey. And for every warrior, family member, and caregiver, that journey looks different.
The Northville Food & Wine Festival is proud to support the men and women of the Wounded Warrior Project.
