Commander Nutsch was portrayed by actor Chris Hemsworth in the 2018 major motion picture, "12 Strong." The film shares the now-declassified, true-life story of the first Special Forces team deployed to Afghanistan after 9/11. Under Nutsch's leadership, the team must work with an Afghan warlord to take down the Taliban, eventually securing victory in what is considered the most successful unconventional warfare campaign in modern history. In addition to serving as the luncheon keynote, Commander Nutsch will participate in an audience Q&A following a special screening of "12 Strong" for bronze level and higher patrons on Wednesday, November 7th.
Tickets for the luncheon, which is chaired by William and Mary C. Corrigan, are $300. Those bronze level and higher will be invited to attend the screening of "12 Strong" on Wed., Nov. 7.
