Friday Keynote and General Session Our Friday Keynote Address features Lieutenant Colonel Rob Darling who will take us "Inside the President’s Bunker” during 9/11 as he provided his military expertise and became a liaison between the Vice President, National Security Advisor and the Pentagon. Lieutenant Colonel Darling witnessed first- hand the enormity of the crisis leadership decisions made that day on behalf of all Americans.
John Tippet’s General Session on Friday will warm your heart with an inspirational story about famed Alaska bush pilot Harold Gillam and his flight from Seattle, WA to Alaska back in 1943. The plane crashed in the Alaska wilderness about 30 miles from his intended refueling stop at Annette Island. Gillam and his five passengers all survived the crash. Four of the six persons survived 29 days in the wilderness before being rescued. Hearts of Courage is a survival story beyond belief.
