Reggae crooner and U.S. Marine Gulf War veteran Shaggy will be among those recognized for his service and support for fellow veterans at the Boston Veterans Day Dinner on Nov. 7.
The fundraiser event, presented by Hanscom Federal Credit Union and hosted by Home Base, a Red Sox Foundation and Massachusetts General Hospital Program, will take place at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. The night aims to honor the service of military families and recognize the nonprofit's biggest supporters.
"My military experience helped shape me into the person that I am today.” Shaggy said in a press statement. “I am honored to be associated with such an important event and cause and look forward to continuing a friendship with Home Base for years to come.”
