The Omaha Empowerment Breakfast, which meets on the first Friday of every month at 7 a.m. at Beacon Hills in Aksarben Village, recently announced the main speaker for their November meeting and their focus to honor veterans in light of Veteran’s Day, which is on November 11.
Bill and Evonne Williams will be the main speakers at November’s meeting, having four sons who have served in the military and a passion for honoring all those who serve. Of their sons, two are in the Army and two are Marines. The oldest is still active duty, serving as a JAG at Fort Riley after three tours to Iraq. The second son, a Marine, deployed to Afghanistan in 2013.
The Williams’ are co-founders of Patriotic Productions, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor military service members, both past and present. They have also organized Honor Flights in Nebraska and Remember our Fallen, a traveling photo memorial to honor our nation’s fallen soldiers since September 11, 2001. At the meeting, the Williams’ will give an update on their nonprofit, covering highlights of Honor Flights, Remembering our Fallen, their Patriotic Parade and Concert, and the homecoming for Cpl Page.
