The NAACP San Diego Branch is showing our gratitude to the military members past and present for their sacrifices for our country and their contributions to the San Diego community. California has the largest concentration of military personnel and dependents of any other State. San Diego County has the largest concentration of military personnel within California. There are approximately 110,700 Active Duty personnel and 118,300 family members, which represents 7.6 percent of San Diego County’s total population.
Why should you sponsor?
Your presence and sponsorship participation in this event are great opportunities to show your appreciation to our local military community.
My name is Sherry Strothers, I am the Chair of the Armed Services and Veterans' Affairs Committee Chair, for NAACP San Diego. I retired from the Navy in 2016 after 30 years of active and honorable service.
I'm currently involved with several activism groups because I want to give back to the country that has given so much to me.
