Norfolk, VA – The Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce will host a Military Recognition Reception on Friday, August 9, at 3 p.m. at the Norfolk Waterside Marriott, located at 235 E. Main Street in downtown Norfolk. This reception, held to honor the hardworking men and women of the military, will recognize more than 50 military personnel from local commands. The service members will be joined at the reception by their families, military leadership, elected officials, and businessmen and women from the region.

The guest speaker is Congressman Robert Scott, who is currently serving his eleventh term in Congress. Rep. Scott currently serves on the Committee on the Judiciary, where he is the Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, Homeland Security, and Investigations and a member of the Subcommittee on the Constitution and Civil Justice. 

The Chamber holds Military Recognition Receptions twice a year because they are such an important part of our region.

The Chamber has been recognizing the accomplishments of the military at this reception for more than 18 years.  This event is open to the public.
