The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum paid tribute to our nation’s heroes and honored Gen. David H. Petraeus, 10th Commander of the U.S. Central Command at its 19th Annual “Salute to Freedom Dinner” on Thursday, May 27 with a gala dinner aboard the floating museum on Manhattan’s West Side.
“The Intrepid Museum’s mission is to honor the men and women who have served our nation. General Petraeus has led our troops overseas in that exact effort, and we are indebted to his leadership and love of country,” said Susan Marenoff, Executive Director of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. “This annual event throws a spotlight on individuals who have gone above and beyond the call of duty for our nation.”
Past recipients of the "Intrepid Freedom Award" include Presidents George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and William Jefferson Clinton; Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton, John McCain; Congressmen Newt Gingrich and Bill Young; His Excellencies Yitzhak Rabin, Silvio Berlusconi and Boris Yeltsin; Rt. Honorable Baroness Margaret Thatcher; Defense Secretaries Robert Gates, Donald Rumsfeld, William Cohen and Dick Cheney; Chairman of the Joint Chiefs General Richard B. Myers, USAF; General Henry Shelton, USA, General Colin Powell, USA, and General Tommy R. Franks, USA; His Eminence John Cardinal O’Connor; The Honorable Michael R. Bloomberg and New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, among others.
The Veterans musical group 4Troops sang the National Anthem and provided additional musical entertainment at the dinner. 4Troops, the official vocal group of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund will donate a portion of the sales of its current album, 4Troops, to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

In addition, Credit Suisse employees based in the US will volunteer in support of Intrepid efforts such as collecting and packaging donations to send to service members overseas.  The Intrepid Museum will also work with Credit Suisse to generate volunteer interest and participation in supporting Intrepid efforts on behalf of the US military and veterans communities.
