For today’s Throwback Thursday¬†I go back just a few years to November 8, 2012 when I got the opportunity to meet, for the second time, General Tommy Franks. I first¬†him in 2008, soon after he joined the Board of Directors of CEC Entertainment, where I was Director of Risk Management. It was a pleasure, although admittedly a tad intimidating, describing our risk management strategy to our newest (and very decorated) board member. General Franks is a true American hero and a fine man. I’m honored to have gotten to meet him – twice!

2015 Photo-A-Day 1.20.2015

We saw “American Sniper” this evening. It is an intense movie that offers an eye-opening portrayal of war while providing a stunning tribute to American hero Chris Kyle. If you haven’t seen it I highly recommend it.

I would love for people to be able to think of me as a guy who stood up for what he believed in and helped make a difference for the vets. ~ Chris Kyle via BrainyQuote.com
