Paving the Way for Veterans
Beating the first year’s fundraising total, over $160,000 was raised at the second-annual golf invitational and dinner gala. Lieutenant General Frank H. Kearney, III USA (Ret.) attended as VIP Guest Speaker. Lieutenant General Kearney, a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, retired in 2012 from the United States Army after more than 35 years of experience.
He has served in operational and command assignments at every level with combat tours in Grenada, Panama, Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan. His final active duty assignment was Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at the National Counterterrorism Center in Washington D.C. where he worked with 29 different cabinet-level agencies in the U.S. Government to achieve the goals of the President’s Counterterrorism strategy. Currently, he works with military and corporate groups to assist in improving organizational performance through leadership development.
Through speaking engagements, business seminars, and mentorship, he continues to uphold the core idea that every U.S. military leader has a responsibility to develop the next generation, teaching others that great leaders create environments characterized by trust, camaraderie, and personal growth.
