Every year, the Oxnard Chamber of Commerce’s Military Appreciation Committee hosts the Military Appreciation Dinner to honor local heroes from all branches of the military. Now in its 22nd year, the dinner provides an opportunity for the business community and leaders from the city and region to meet and connect with local servicemen and women.
The honorees are selected by their commanding officers not only for their military service, but also for their service in the local community. The 2019 honorees are:
With the theme “Honoring our local military with respect and pride,” this year’s dinner will feature keynote speaker United States Army Major General Terrence J. McKenrick.

The Military Appreciation Dinner will be held at the Courtyard by Marriott Oxnard on Friday, September 20 from 6:00-9:00 pm.
Advance registrations are required and can be made via the Chamber's website or by calling the office at (805) 983-6118. Sponsorships are also available.
