About 100 wounded servicemen and women, family members, staff, and caregivers from Walter Reed National Medical Center, Fort Meade, and Fort Belvoir attended the event titled,“Love Forever, Forever Opera” at the Embassy of Italy. The concert featured Maestro Alexis Soriano and The New York Opera Society Chamber Orchestra that performed a collection of famous opera pieces from Carmen, Tosca, The Barber of Seville, and Rigoletto.

Nearly 500 people, including officials from the U.S. Departments of Defense, State, Treasury, and Veterans Affairs, as well as Members of Congress, diplomats, and other members of the Washington community assembled to honor wounded veterans, their families, and their caregivers in attendance.

The Ambassador of Italy to United States Claudio Bisogniero delivered a brief welcome address. “The wounded warriors,” said the Ambassador,“embody the ultimate symbol of devotion to their homeland and to the values to which we are all committed. The Italian military is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with its American colleagues to defend peace, security and our fundamental values and rights, in different – and often difficult – parts of the world.”

Simone Bemporad, Chief Executive Officer of Finmeccanica North America, expressed his appreciation for servicemen and servicewomen: “As a longtime partner of the U.S. Armed Forces, the men and women of Finmeccanica have learned much about our men and women in uniform…. Working with you every day has taught us that there is nothing to be prouder of than serving those who serve the Nation.”

William J. Lynn, Chief Executive Officer of DRS Technologies, who also spoke, recognized the warriors for their service: “Our wounded warriors inspire us by their courage and resilience. We owe them a debt of gratitude, which we can never fully repay, yet we can make small installments at occasions such as this in their honor.”

Following the performance, Finmeccanica (finmeccanica.com) presented charitable donations to three organizations that support wounded service members: The Aleethia Foundation, Fisher House Foundation, and Wounded Warrior Projectä.

On hand to accept the check for The Aleethia Foundation was Founder and President, Hal Koster; For Fisher House, President Dave Coker; For Wounded Warrior Project™, Anthony Odierno, Secretary of the Board of Directors.
