    Name: Destin Chamber's Military Affairs Council (MAC) Meeting
    Date: August 7, 2019
    Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:
    Our Military Affairs Council (MAC) will meet at noon, in the Chamber's conference room. Our speaker is Dr. Thomas Piazza, Invisible Wounds Center medical director/site director at Eglin Air Force Base. Discussion will include the Intrepid Spirit Center, which broke ground in May 2019. According to an article about the groundbreaking, “The Eglin Intrepid Spirit Center was a donation from the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund to the Department of Defense. It is the first on an Air Force base and the eighth of 10 located on military installations nationwide. The ISC will be a treatment center for post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury, associated pain conditions and psychological injuries in regional active duty service members.” The center is scheduled for completion in May 2020.
