The Navy SEAL Museum: History Unfolds on our Beach with Rick Kaiser

Thursday, Feb 7, 2019 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: The Emerson Center

Category: Lectures

Description

On February 7, Richard (Rick) Kaiser, U.S. Navy SEAL (Ret) and recipient of the Silver Star for Valor (Battle of Mogadishu - "Black Hawk Down"), will bring stories of the incredible role Navy Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) and Sea, Air, Land (SEAL) teams have played in some of the most challenging military assignments ever undertaken on behalf of our nation.

Master Chief Kaiser, the Director of the Navy SEAL Museum on North Hutchinson Island, will also recall how former UDT Frogmen from World War II worked to procure the then-defunct Ft. Pierce Treasure Museum to create a museum dedicated to these exceptional service members. In fact, Kaiser's Emerson Center appearance occurs on the 11th anniversary of the date Congress designated this museum as a National Museum.

No ticket is required. Arrive early for choice seating.
