RINGKNOCKER Virtual Meetup #7 with Guy Snodgrass
Guy Snodgrass (USNA ’98) is a highly-decorated F/A-18 pilot with 719 carrier landings under his belt, Masters degrees in both Nuclear Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a Pentagon tour as Speechwriter to the Chief of Naval Operations, and an at-sea squadron command tour… none of which involved his hardest job.
After his command tour, Guy returned to the Pentagon as Director of Communications and Chief Speechwriter to Secretary Jim Mattis, the eminently quotable 26th Secretary of Defense (and the first of the Trump administration). This experience is the basis of Guy’s book, Holding the Line: Inside Trump’s Pentagon with Secretary Mattis, published after his retirement from active duty.
They say we are all the average of the five people we hang out with most. At this week’s Meetup, Guy will share with us some of the life-altering lessons he drew from a tour of duty in the company of giants, during one of the most dramatic periods in the history of American political life.
Need we say it? Don’t miss this one.
