RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup #39 with John Laney
The guest speaker at this week’s RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup will be John Laney (USNA ’00).
John’s first EOD command board posed him a simple question: “What are you reading?” They didn’t like his answer, and it nearly cost him his command.
His response to this experience was to exercise a little leadership: John decided to create DODReads, a website where he chronicles his (officially mandated) journey of lifelong learning and reading.
John got his command and eventually retired from the Navy last year. He is currently on a working sabbatical with his family in Baja California, helping to build roads and other infrastructure for the locals. Meanwhile, DODReads is passing 100,000 views per month as service members and veterans take up and share their own journeys of reading, lifelong learning, leadership, and personal development.
