Our final Military Appreciation Month post is in honor of Hall of Fame Speaker, Combat Veteran, and New York Times Bestselling Author– Waldo Waldman!

combat-veteran-eagles-talentWaldman’s impressive background includes being a highly experienced combat veteran with over 2,650 flight hours and sixty-five real world combat missions. Some of his military honors include five Air Medals, two Aerial Achievement Medals, four Air Force Commendation Medals, and two Meritorious Service Medals. Today, he is a professional leadership speaker.

He is also the founder and President of “The Wingman Foundation,” a 501(c)(3)–which builds funds and raises awareness for soldiers, veterans and their families in need.

Last week, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Waldman to ask him questions regarding his past, present and plans for the future. We discussed how his dreams of becoming a pilot came to fruition, how he overcame his life-changing scuba diving accident, his upcoming book on mentor-ship and much more. Additionally, he told me about his most memorable mission, which highlighted the importance of becoming your own wing-man! Furthermore, we talked about his best selling book, “Never Fly Solo” where he shares strategies to help organizations communicate effectively under high stress situations. During this, he revealed some of his most valuable tips and life lessons he’s learned along the way.

It was an honor to have Colonel Waldo Waldman conclude National Military Appreciation Month. We thank you for your service!
