St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church will be honoring our veterans at all services on Saturday, Nov. 12 and Sunday Nov. 13. After the 9:30 a.m. service, the church will host a very special guest and author, Harry Constance, USN Ret. and member of Seal Team 2.
In 1966 Constance became a member of the newly formed U.S. Navy SEAL Team 2. By 1970, he was a veteran of 300 combat missions in Vietnam, had captured almost 200 enemy prisoners, and had received three bronze star medals and a purple heart after being wounded in battle. Constance is co-author of "Good to Go - The Life and Times of a Decorated Member of the U.S. Navy's Elite Seal Team Two."
After his service in the Navy, Constance continued to serve his country as an Operations Executive for Blackwater Inc. Blackwater provided security services for civilians such as in the State Department, Congress, and other dignitaries and heads of state when they visited Iraq and Afghanistan.
In several tours of duty, Constance and his teams were responsible for security services in the Green Zone of Bagdad and in Kabul.
Attendees will be enriched and entertained by this dedicated American, man of God and the stories he can tell. It will be a time to get and inside look into the Afghanistan and Iraq wars as told through the eyes of a decorated American hero and patriot.
Please join us at the forum on Sunday, Nov. 13, 11 a.m., in the Parish Hall. A light lunch will be served.
