Special Event - Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, Commander of the Air Force Special Operations Command

The Explorers Club is proud to present a unique afternoon with Lt. Gen. Brad Webb, Commander of the Air Force Special Operations Command.

With his background in the Special Forces community, Lt. General Webb’s command is a bastion of classic exploration skills: compass and celestial navigation, cultural and linguistic expertise, trekking great distances with field supplies strapped to your back -- and meshing those with the foremost technological elements and latest in digital tech for successful mission coordination.

In his Q&A with Jim Clash FR'99, Lt. Gen. Webb will share tales about his life in the military, lessons learned that have applicability to the exploration community, and provide motivation for individuals looking to confront physically strenuous and/or mentally challenging field expedition pursuits. Afterward, Clash will open up questions to the audience in attendance.
