Post-9/11 Veterans Inspire a New Generation of Leaders
As the nation celebrates and honors America’s veterans, it’s the veterans themselves who are sharing with us their experiences from the frontlines. Former classmates of the first graduating class from the Naval Academy after the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks, Major Elizabeth Kreft and Lieutenant Commander Joshua Welle, joined Fox and Friends on this Veterans Day.
They contributed to the book, “In the Shadow of Greatness: Voices of Leadership, Sacrifice, and Service from America's Longest War.” Maj. Kreft said the goal was the capture their own stories and hopefully inspire new leaders.
LCDR Welle talked about the transformation soldiers undergo and said the book underscores “young leaders in the 21st century after 9/11 and how they adapted to war, how they were called to do unique things they weren’t trained for.”
