Force-Con 2022: Military Heroes Unite
September 24, 2022: 10 AM - 1 PM
September 25, 2022: 12 PM - 5 PM
Operation Call-To-Service presents Force-Con 2022, the inaugural 3-Day military convention and Art Festival involving action/adventure, animation, film, comics and literary works. In partnership with Army Week San Diego, Force-Con 2022 is expected to be the largest 3-day superhero military convention coming to San Diego this September 23-25. The event is inspired by the POW/MIA historical fiction story “Purple Foxes United” involving heroines who join together to save their brothers in arms. The characters are based on real-life heroes, our service members, and Honor Flight San Diego alumni veterans.
The Coronado Island Film Festival (CIFF) will co-host “Opening Night” on Friday, September 23, 2022 which features a red-carpet gala at the San Diego Air & Space Museum and a special film presentation of “Into Flight Once More,” produced by the Tunison Foundation, DC-3 Society, Benovia Winery and Sound Off Films. The documentary highlights the D-Day Squadron and their 2019 mission to re-cross the Atlantic for the 75th Anniversary of D-Day - an amazing feat to celebrate the end of WWII in Normandy, France. The film is narrated by Academy Award nominated actor and veteran advocate Gary Sinise.
Tickets for the “Into Flight Once More” evening presentation on Friday, September 23, 2022, can be purchased at www.Force-Con.com. VIP Experience seating is limited.
