Brigadier Gen. James W. Lukeman, the commanding general for 2nd Marine Division, talks to the Marines and sailors attending the Dinner for Heroes at his house May 15, 2013, and thanks them for attending. Leadership from all over 2nd Marine Division attended the dinner to honor the 17 Marines and sailors that had been recognized by their units as going above and beyond both in combat and in the United States. Mr. Paul Chapa, the founder of the Dinner for Heroes, started the event in January 2011 as a way to give back to Marines and sailors for their outstanding service. Other organizations such as Harris Teeter, Acosta and Nash Finch have joined with Chapa to donate food for the dinner.
