Tri Cities branch sponsors annual volunteer banquet, hosts Secretary of Defense

The Tri Cities, Washington branch recently had a well-known visitor: Secretary of Defense James Mattis. Originally from Richland, Washington (where the branch is located) Sec. Mattis was in town to speak at the annual Tri-Citian of the Year volunteer banquet, which the Tri Cities branch sponsored. At the sold-out event with nearly 1,000 attendees, West Divisional Director Darryl Traweek spoke for a few minutes, and introduced Financial Advisor Andy Wade (COL, U.S. Army Reserves), who then introduced Sec. Mattis. Tri Cities Branch Director Brad Fisher knows Sec. Mattis personally, and invited him to visit the branch the following day. There, Sec. Mattis met with employees and family members, and a $2,227 donation was presented in his name from the branch to the Tri-Cities Food Bank.  The Tri Cities Branch hosts Secretary of Defense James Mattis (seated, third from left).
