Taylor — A Medal of Honor recipient is scheduled to deliver the keynote address at a veterans’ event in suburban Detroit.

Salvatore Giunta is to appear Wednesday at the Governor’s Summit on Veteran Talent. The former soldier was awarded the nation’s highest award for valor for courageous actions during battle in Afghanistan in 2007.

The Governor’s Summit is to take place at Masco Corp.’s headquarters in Taylor and be live-streamed on Detroit Public Television’s website.

The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency and the Detroit Regional Chamber have been working together to make the event a reality. It’s designed to bring together employers from across the state to share best practices for hiring and retaining veteran employees.

Gov. Rick Snyder also is to speak.
