Joint Service Special Operations Fund Benefit
For the past two years, I've had the honor of contributing copies of Mission Transition to attendees of the Joint Service Special Operations Fund benefit. My purpose in doing so was three-fold:
1. Recognize my late USMA classmate Anthony DeToto, the impact he had on me, and his impact on enabling Mission Transition to see the light of day. (See the video below from last year's event.)
2. Thank Joe DePinto, USMA class of 1986, CEO of 7-Eleven Inc., and sponsor of the event, for his direct support of the book in writing its Foreword.
3. Emphasize the value of Mission Transition for our special operations forces in offsetting the incredibly increasing rates of suicide among our active duty service members. (See my white paper on this topic.)
