This was sent to me by Milt – it is a riveting tale of survival and rescue, and the life lessons that come from them.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QvRcP4go-eg[/youtube]
There is more to this story.
The speaker is retired Brigadier General Steve Ritchie, America’s first ace pilot in the Vietnam War, and the only Air Force ace. He was a football star at the Air Force Academy and graduated at the top of his class in flight school. After leaving the Air Force he joined the Colorado National Guard and retired as a Brigadier General.
He spends his time doing motivational speaking. I think he made the right career choice.
