The Lake Norman Conservatives met at Fox and Hound in Birkdale. The group has interesting speakers and help others to learn about issues impacting our region, state and nation. This particular meeting featured Karen & Billy Vaughn. They discussed Extortion 17 and are parents of the late Aaron Vaughn, a Navy Seal who died in the plane crash while on a mission coded Extortion 17. Photos by Dana Pianowski.
