Meet 2016 “Symbol of Freedom” Special Guest – Retired Lieutenant Joe Torrillo!

The Symbol of Freedom event is a two event series, designed to elevate knowledge of CDM Caregiving Services, a local non-profit organization that has been doing business in Southwest Washington for over 35 years.

These events are centered around Veterans Day to provide a great opportunity to recognize and honor our local veterans. Our special guest speaker this year is Joe Torrillo, a retired Lieutenant with the NYC Fire Department and survivor “Twin Towers” World Trade Center September 11, 2001.


The VIP event at 6:30PM on November 2nd is a more intimate gathering with Joe Torrillo at the Artillery Barracks on the Fort Vancouver National Site and offers an opportunity to personally meet our special guest Joe Torrillo. The ability to have a quick chat, photo or autograph with Mr. Torrillo will be available.  This event has limited space and tickets sell out quickly.
