The Salado Area Republican Women luncheon meeting 11 a.m. Feb 25, at the Meadows Room inside the Salado Civic Center, will celebrate February, Heart Month, by serving a heart-healthy salad buffet furnished by the SARW Board of Directors.
Anthony Triola, Chief Warrant Officer Four (Ret) United States Army, a highly decorated Veteran, will be the guest speaker. He will speak on Fort Hood, and recent activities. Anthony served 33 months in combat: six months in Operation Desert Storm and 27 months in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Since leaving the service Anthony has devoted his time and energy to Bell County politics, including serving as the Chairman of Voting Precinct 209, and since June 2014 as an election judge. In June 2015 he was honored with a position on Congressman John Carter’s staff, serving as the Field Representative for Fort Hood.
