LOS ANGELES — May 7, 2013 — “A Night to Remember” an extraordinary event to benefit the SEAL-Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation is set for June 15 from 5:30 p.m. to midnight at the Los Angeles Center Studios, 1201 West Fifth Street in downtown Los Angeles.

“Guests will have an unparalleled access to many of the weapons and tools that our Special Operations Forces use to carry out their missions,” said John Galt, CEO of the NSW Family Foundation. “There will be myriad opportunities for guests to touch, be briefed and in many cases personally experience what it is like to work with these technologically advanced and seldom seen products, services and systems that keep our military members safe.”

The event will feature interactive displays, kinetic demonstrations and unprecedented access to an exciting array of state-of-the-art equipment including drones, weapon systems of all types, infrared and night vision equipment, tactical gear, lasers, advance communication and translation systems, and the K-9 Dogs of War.
