LINDSAY LECTURES WITH TERESE SCHLACHTER & COL GREGORY GADSON (RET.)

Posted

Join us February 7th at the ASOM for our Distinguished Speaker Series with Terese Schlachter & Colonel Gregory Gadson (Ret.)!

All active-duty service members get in free upon registration.

Terese Schlachter & Colonel Gregory Gadson (Ret.) will discuss their new book, Finding Waypoints: A Warrior’s Journey Towards Peace and Purpose. After he lost both legs in an IED attack in Iraq in 2007, Colonel Gadson felt his sense of self had been obliterated. Yet within eight months, he was mentoring the NY Giants to their 2008 Super Bowl win and would later star in the major motion picture, Battleship. He is now a much sought-after motivational speaker. The co-authors will discuss Colonel Gadson’s early life, his path from the Army football team to a distinguished military career, his injury, its incredible aftermath, and the waypoints that sustained him throughout.

The title of the book comes from an encounter with an Army major during his posting at the former Fort Bragg, now Fort Liberty. It’s an inspirational story, and one that will resonate with today’s soldiers.
