The Honorable David Howell Petraeus was our special guest at the Sweethearts and Patriots Gala on February 26, 2022, at The Mansion on O Street. The event benefits The National Military Family Association, whose mission is to stand up for, support, and enhance the quality of life for every military family through bold advocacy, innovative programming, and dynamic and responsive solutions.
General Petraeus is a partner in the global investment firm KKR and Chairman of the KKR Global Institute. He is also a member of the boards of Optiv and OneStream, a personal venture investor, and engaged in various academic endeavors.
General Petraeus highlighted his military service and his service as director of the CIA. He discussed what advocacy organizations such as the National Military Family Association mean to those who honorably serve our country and to their families.
Guests were able to enjoy the many photographs and other historical artifacts contained in many rooms and hidden rooms in the four-story mansion museum. The event was enjoyed by all.
