ASOMF Distinguished Speaker Series: A Virtual Night With Col. (Ret.) Keith Nightingale

September 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation invites you to attend the upcoming Distinguished Speaker Series virtual event with Col. (Ret.) Keith Nightingale, former Deputy Operations Officer and the junior member of Joint Task Force Eagle Claw.
Join us virtually on September 22, from 7-8 p.m. to hear Col. Nightingale lead an interactive discussion of his book, “Phoenix Rising: From the Ashes of Desert One to the Rebirth of U.S. Special Operations”.
Based on Nightingale’s detailed diary, “Phoenix Rising” vividly describes the personalities involved in Operation Eagle Claw, the issues they faced, and the actions they took, from its conception to the hair-raising launch and execution. His historically significant post-analysis of Eagle Claw gives unparalleled insight into how a very dedicated group of people, from the Chief of Staff of the Army to lower-ranking personnel, subjugated personal ambition to grow the forces necessary to address the emerging terrorist threat—a threat which the majority of uniformed leadership and their political masters denied in 1979.
Your registration will include an autographed copy of “Phoenix Rising”, a year-long Paratrooper Museum Friend Membership, and admission into the sixty-minute virtual session. Once you check out, an email will be sent to you with the meeting instructions.
