Stars & Stripes Gala

USO San Diego’s 77th Annual Stars & Stripes Gala: For Love of Country honored our active duty military personnel while celebrating San Diego’s Armed Forces. The night featured stories of bravery from local service members and recognized military veteran Jack McGrory as honoree. Mark Larson of KFMB AM radio served as emcee, while Marine Corps veteran Rob Jones was guest speaker. Entertainment included a performance by two-time Tony Winner Brian Stokes Mitchell. To date, the event has raised more than $1,000,000 for our local military.
