Join the United Corpus Christi Chamber of Commerce for Salute to the Military, presented by Walmart, with Keynote Speaker Captain Gail Harris.  

A fearless trailblazer, Harris was a formidable force in the Navy.  As the first female and first African American for every job assignment she accepted, Harris faced serious opposition from her superiors and peers.  With her fierce intelligence and sense of humor, Harris quickly earned their respect.  Her memoir, A Woman's War: The Professional and Personal Journey of the Navy's First African American Female Intelligence Officer, follows Harris's inspirational career, sharing her unique perspective as she completed the complex task of providing intelligence support to military operations while also battling the status quo, office bullies and politics.  To read more about Captain Gail Harris, click here!
