Given the major events of the day in Afghanistan, our program will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. and will feature Grand Strand MOAA member, Jerry Rovner, CAPT, USN (retired), a survivor of the World Trade Center attacks in New York City.  Captain Rovner will share photos and memories of his experiences that day and the impacts on him and the country ever since.  You do not want to miss this emotional, unique presentation from someone who was there.  A photo and brief bio of Captain Rovner can be found below.
