For The Men, For The Mission
The Company Officer is the most critical role in the fire service. In today’s fire service many Company Officers lose sight of what makes their position so important. This program not only looks at the traits of lackluster leaders but also focuses on the positive core values you should strive for as a Company Officer. From the transition to the position, to how to lead on the fire floor and beyond realizing that the men and the mission are your top priorities will set you apart from the other Company Officers. Learn from my mistakes to help you be the leader and the boss that sets not only you but your company up for success. $20.

A TESTAMENT OF TEAMWORK- Come meet and speak with Aircrew and Infantryman involved in the Yankee 26 mission and Operation Mountain Resolve. Present will be Pilot CW4 (Ret) Larry Murphy, Flight Engineer MSG James Duggan, and Infantryman Kollin Berg. All directly participated in the Operation that resulted in the mission where a photo was taken of a U.S. Army Boeing CH-47 Chinook Transport Helicopter performing a rooftop landing in the remote mountain region of Northeastern Afghanistan to extract and relocate detained personnel. In November 2003 during Operation Mountain Resolve, the crew of Yankee 26 from G Co., 104th Aviation Regiment, a combined unit from both the PA and CT Army National Guard, was providing resupply and support operations to infantry elements of the 10th Mountain Division. This challenging rear wheel landing onto a tenuous “mud hut” rooftop taken by an embedded Combat Cameraman, was accomplished in severe, rugged, steep mountain terrain in very low light conditions under threat of enemy fire has become an iconic image from that conflict.
The presentation will include discussions from both the aircrew and ground party soldier’s perspectives, detailing the events of Operation Mountain Resolve leading up the mission. We are delighted to share their stories which highlight the importance of teamwork during military operations contributing to overall mission success.
Dress Code: Business Attire – No Jeans or sneakers, please
