Bethesda, MD. – May 30, 2019 –DMI Federal President John Epperly travels to Normandy, France to represent the Virginia National Guard’s 29th Infantry Division and speak at a ceremony honoring the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion of Europe.

The D-Day invasion remains the most significant battle in the Blue and Gray Division’s one hundred year history,” says Epperly. “The friendship between the 29th Infantry Division and the people of Vierville-sur-Mer, France was born on that fateful day and has endured. I look forward to the ceremonies and would like to recognize DMI for the company’s support of my service in the Virginia National Guard.”
“John is a citizen-soldier who demonstrates a commitment to excellence on a daily basis,” said DMI CEO and Founder, Jay Sunny Bajaj. “We fully support John’s leadership in the Virginia National Guard and thank John, and the many other citizen soldiers who work at DMI, for their service to our nation.”
