You are invited to attend this joint Duke, Purdue, and University of Georgia alumni event at MCAS Miramar! While mingling with fellow alumni, you will learn more about the Marines, get a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with the operational aircraft they fly, and have drinks in the Officers’ Club, the very same Officers’ Club made famous in Top Gun where Maverick (Tom Cruise) sang You’ve Lost that Loving Feeling to Charlie (Kelly McGillis)!
Tickets for this event are $29.50 per person and must be purchased in advance. RSVP is required by August 8. Heavy hors d’oeuvres will be served and a cash bar will be available at the Officers’ Club.
We look forward to seeing you!
