April 24, 2018 Luncheon Meeting Speaker
Colonel John Antal, US Army (Retired)

The topic of Col John Antal's speech will be "Leadership and Liberty, Ideas that will Raise your Leadership". Col. ANTAL is the author of 13 books. He takes qualifying ROTC graduating seniors from college each year to Vicksburg and Normandy where the cadets learn Leadership from the reenactments of the battles fought there.

He was awarded the Congressional Veteran Commendation award by Senator Sam Johnson this past October.

Plan on attending our April luncheon to hear this Very Dynamic speaker and to honor our ROTC Cadets with your presence at our luncheon.

Something that concerns us all is the North and South Korean conflict especially since the false alarm that missiles were headed towards Hawaii recently.

Col. John Antal spent 17 days this past December at the DMZ zone talking to the leaders in that area. He knows the DMZ zone intimately having commanded 850 soldiers and a tank battalion on the DMZ zone and says that the DMZ is always on the verge of war. It is the most militarized area in the world. The Olympics gave the North Koreans more time to build their defenses and were using their Olympic athletes to try and subvert the hockey team and ski teams.

We will learn what is likely to come out of "The 6 month Time Frame" following the Olympics.

Col. Antal has served his country for 30 years retiring in 2003.His last assignment was as Operations officer for the 62,000 soldier III Armed Corps at Fort Hood Texas.

He has held key positions in the U.S. Army and was special assistant to the Joint Chief's of Staff. He's a West Point graduate, Army Command and General Staff College. He schools ROTC groups and takes these groups to Normandy and to Vicksburg, Miss. for reenactment of battle scenes. He holds a Master of Military Arts and Sciences.

In retirement he is VP for Knowledge Operations for Gearbox Software in Plano. TX. and Founding editor of Armchair General - a military magazine.

Col Antal is a Patriot, Soldier and a Lifelong Leaner and we are very lucky to have him speak at our April luncheon." More information on Col. Antal is available at his website: www.american-leadership.com
