Gen. Stan McChrystal featured speaker at chamber dinner

INDIANAPOLIS — A special salute to the military and the Hoosier companies that work closely with these heroes will be part of the Indiana Chamber’s Annual Awards Dinner on Nov. 12, the day after Veteran’s Day. Additionally, as is tradition, Indiana’s Business Leader of the Year, Government Leader of the Year and Community of the Year (previously announced as Bedford) will be recognized that evening.

Special tributes are planned along with a presentation from Gen. Stan McChrystal. The retired four-star general led the top secret Joint Special Operations Command in Iraq during the Persian Gulf wars and was the chief commander of American forces in Afghanistan.
