The Northeast Indiana Base Community Council welcomes keynote speaker Jimmy Blackmon. Author of "Pale Horse" the story of hunting terrorist with the heroes of the 101st Airborne Division, he is among the most combat experienced leaders of the modern era. We are honored to have Col. Blackmon with us at the upcoming, Northeast Indiana Base Community Council Member / Guest Luncheon.

Jimmy Blackmon has led high risk missions all over the world including serving as the air mission commander on the operation that netted #2 and #3 in the famous Iraqi deck of cards. Amazingly, Jimmy also served as the aviation commander during the battles in which four Medals of Honor were earned in Afghanistan – in the very valleys where the attacks of 9-11 were planned and rehearsed. Having achieved impressive results, Jimmy understands how to navigate the complexities of the 21st Century, build cohesive teams with purpose, and motivate America’s millennial generation

Jimmy’s natural storytelling ability brings his experiences alive. From funny, behind the scenes soldier stories to high stakes crisis management in combat, Jimmy shares colorful experiences that are sure to both educate and entertain your audience, but Jimmy is far more than a proven leader and entertaining speaker.  As a featured speaker for major American businesses Jimmy uses the leadership skills used in combat as a bridge to building strong leaders in business. 

Join us for another dynamic speaker as we work together to make Northeast Indiana America's Most Engaged Military Community! The Luncheon gives an opportunity for guests to hear updates from local military leaders, learn of opportunities to participate in NIBCC initiatives, and hear from an inspiring veteran/military related presenter in a private atmosphere.

When: Wednesday, October 18th, 2017, Registration will begin at 11 A.M., program runs 11:30a.m. – 1:30p.m..

Where: Ramada Plaza Fort Wayne Hotel and Conference Center,
