A lunch highlighting the women serving on the front lines of wars across the globe is to be held in a Deeside hotel in aid of a military charity.

And organisers hope it’ll be smooth sailing as the guest after-lunch speaker will be a high ranking female officer in the US Navy.

US Naval Commander Brenda Steele McCrimmon will be making the trip from her home in North Carolina to the Marcliffe Hotel to tell of her exciting career on the waves.

She serves as a public affairs Officer for the Third fleet in San Diego, California.

Her active assignments include, Navy Cyber Forces, Norfolk, Virginia. International Security Assistance Forces Inaugural Committee, Washington D.C. International Security Forces Afghanistan, strike Forces NATO Naples Italy.

And Commander McCrimmon has made her own small contribution to the ‘special relationship’ between Britain and the US by marrying Royal Marine Stuart- who is currently serving inn Afghanistan.

All funds raised will go toward the ABF soldiers charity.
