Alice Forest, wife of Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest, is asking for the support of North Carolinians onSaturday, October 4th, 2014 at 6:00PM for the 10th annual USO of North Carolina Salute to Freedom Gala. The goal of this annual event is to honor someone from each branch of the armed forces, as well as, the National Guard.

USO of North Carolina is the largest military based organization in the state and supports all five branches of the military …armed forces, as well as, the National Guard.

Mrs. Forest holds a place in her heart for all the men and women who are fighting and have fought so valiantly for our great country. “I love the bravery and sacrifice of our United States Military men and women. The USO of North Carolina’s Annual Salute to Freedom Gala is one time during the year when we can slow down, remember their commitment and honor their sacrifice. It is a dangerous world out there and our soldiers stand guard to ensure that we remain safe and free back home. Please join me in honoring our national heroes,” said Mrs. Forest.

Dan In The News:













Throughout the General Assembly's short session, Lt. Governor Dan Forest and Senator Jerry Tillman championed the North Carolina Education Endowment. A fund to supplement teacher pay in NC. This measure was included in the approved budget and is now law. One element of the NC Education Endowment is the "I Support Teachers" license plates, from which the proceeds go directly to the Endowment to supplement teacher compensation. 

By law, a certain amount of applications and accompanied payments are required for the plates to begin the printing process. We have opened the application process today and hope to meet that requirement very soon.

To sign up for an "I Support Teachers" License Plate:

  1. Download & Print the Application: http://www.scribd.com/doc/237524869/Application-I-Support-Teachers-License-Plates
