As we recognize our community leaders, we must also honor our local military heroes. Many may know Annie Grogan from her work with The Hispanic Institute for Life and Leadership of Northeast FL Inc. also known as The H.I.L.L., but few know her as a captain in the U.S. Army.  Annie has a long tradition of service and military distinction. Beginning her military career as an ROTC Distinguished Military Cadet, she separated in 1992 as a senior captain. Annie served stateside and overseers in many installations as a Quartermaster Officer and later became a Protocol Officer for a three star general. Her military career coupled with her 20+ years of professional Human Resources experience has laid the foundation for what we know today as The H.I.L.L.  Please join us as we pay tribute to Mrs. Annie Grogan (CAPT, USA(Ret)).
