Event description

Description

International speaker Guy Gruters is coming to Duluth on Sept 21 for the Gift of Love annual fundraiser for the needy.

A U.S. Air Force Captain from Minster, Ohio, Guy Gruters flew more than 400 combat missions during the Vietnam War and was awarded more than 30 combat awards, including two Silver Stars, two distinguished Flying Crosses, two Bronze Stars for Valor, two Purple Hearts, the POW Medal, and more than 20 Air Medals.

It was his faith, however, that carried him to victory in the battle for his life. Shot down twice during the Vietnam War, he was captured the second time and spent 5 years and three months in communist prison camps, where he and other prisoners were tortured to the extent that only one out of 7 of them survived.

Hear for yourself how the transformation of a prisoner of war saved his life and brought him home to a productive life, rich in love of family, community, and country.

Reserve as soon as you can because seating capacity is limited. The location opens at 5:00pm and the speaker begins at 6:00 pm.
