The event, which has been running for over 30 years, gives military and industry insiders access to professional development and connection building workshops, and the opportunity to touch and see a large concentration of machinery, tools, and technologies up close on the show floor. The annual meeting also featured an awards ceremony, where AUSA honored and recognized veterans, supporters, and volunteers who contributed to the Army and the military community.

"AUSA is the premier voice of soldiers and Army families. They are also a longtime advocate, and supporter of our nation's wounded, ill, and injured soldiers, and their families," said Linnington. "It was an honor to again be invited to AUSA and participate in this annual meeting, sharing information on Wounded Warrior Project's life-changing programs and services for wounded soldiers and their families."

Linnington also presented the 2018 AUSA Volunteer Family of the Year Award, which recognizes an exceptional Army family whose dedication and volunteer service significantly contributes to improving the well-being of Army families and the local community.

"Staff Sergeant Vincent Pastore and his family have shown not just a willingness to go above and beyond to help others, but a true understanding of what service means, and the importance it plays in our communities," said Linnington. "He volunteered his time and energy through wide-ranging activities, working with organizations that assist soldiers transitioning from military to civilian employment. This heart of service and volunteerism is especially important to this generation of warriors, who place a high value on the camaraderie and connection they share with their fellow service members."

Staff Sergeant Pastore's wife Tonya and their three daughters — Angelina, 13; Isabella, 11; and Sabrina, 8 — also provided exceptional service and dedication to the Army. To learn more, check out https://newsroom.woundedwarriorproject.org/highlights?item=31029
