Congratulations to Pat Andrews, Florida EF President, Dorene McShea, Naples-Collier Eagle Forum President and all of the Florida Eagles for hosting the 38th Annual Eagle Forum Phyllis Schlafly Luncheon in Naples on March 16… it was outstanding! Kris Paronto (hero of Benghazi) addressed a large audience of veterans representing WWII, Viet Nam, Korea, and current conflicts including Iraq and Afghanistan. Teens, collegians, members of the business community, candidates, Eagles and Floridians from across the state came to hear his riveting account of what happened in Benghazi. Paronto stayed for more than an hour afterward signing books, talking and taking pictures with the crowd who were anxious to meet and thank him for his service.

Pictured at the head table are Dorene McShea, Anne Schlafly Cori, historian and Veterans advocate Lois Bolin, Ph.D. and Kris “Tanto” Paronto.
