Two years ago, we met Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour when she was a keynote speaker at the 2009 Executive Women in Goverment Summit and she wowed the audience with her energy, enthusiasm and accomplishments. Vernice has since become a good friend and supporter of HBE, helping us find a corporate sponsor for our first “Author Meet & Greet” at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
We thought she should write a book about her journey – the first female African-American on Nashville’s motorcyle squad, to a professional women’s football player, and most recently, her experience as the first African-American woman combat helicopter pilot! And, to no one’s surprise, Zero to Breakthrough, was published in April of this year!
Next week, July 6th, HBE will join Vernice and the FlyGirl Team to celebrate the publication of Zero to Breakthrough at an event at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial. Friends and fans are invited to attend and more information is available here. Go Vernice!
