Brigadier General Joe Jerrard takes time to meet with a group of local Cub Scouts and share a story on serving the country during Sunday's pre-game festivities at the Atlanta Gladiators' hockey game. General Jerrard - who is the Georgia Department of Defense Adjutant General and oversees the work of 14,000 Guardsmen and women - told the young boys that service in the military is a very rewarding way of 'protecting our country - and all of our citizens.'
Jerrard and his senior staff were Safe America's guests at the hockey game on January 31 along with another 400 other military personnel and their families during Safe America's 'Welcome Home Heroes' Day. The event was sponsored by Safe America partner Montlick & Associates who provided the funds to cover the cost of free and discounted tickets.
Also shown in photos from the event are Executive Vice President Mary Lou Pagano with General Jerrard; and, CEO Len Pagano visiting with General Jerrard and Montlick & Associates' Marketing Director Melinda Jeffress who graciously hosted top military officers in a VIP suite during the game.
