The Foundation will present the award to Mr. White at the 9th annual Midwest Evening of Tribute on the evening of Thursday, September 3, 2020.

We are proud to honor Miles White.”

“It’s a true honor to be associated with the Navy SEAL Foundation through this award,” said Mr. White. “The SEALs are an exemplary organization and it’s a privilege to support the Navy SEAL Foundation and all those they serve.”

Bill Strong, the 2018 Midwest Evening of Tribute Chair and member of the Foundation’s National Leadership Council, shared, “the Patriot Award recognizes Miles’ unwavering commitment to our nation, the Naval Special Warfare community and their families. His work ethic, dedication to innovation and his leadership, especially during the COVID-19 crisis, is extraordinary.”

White has made an incredible difference in advancing our nation’s healthcare through his work at Abbott, and like the SEALs themselves, he maintains a ‘no quit’ attitude with mission success as his focus.
