A virtual evening with Col. (Ret.) Keith Nightingale, former Deputy Operations Officer and the junior member of Joint Task Force Eagle Claw, and author of "Phoenix Rising".
Based on Nightingale’s detailed diary, Phoenix Rising vividly describes the personalities involved, the issues they faced, and the actions they took, from the conception of the operation to its 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. The Special Operations capability of the United States today is the ultimate proof of their success.
Your registration will include an autographed copy of "Phoenix Rising", a Paratrooper level Museum Friend Membership (unless you are a current Museum Friend), and a sixty-minute virtual session with Col. (Ret.) Keith Nightingale.
