Speaker Clip - Scott O'Grady

An Air Force fighter pilot, Captain Scott O’Grady was shot down over Bosnia while helping to enforce the NATO no-fly zone in an F-16. Alone -- facing death, capture and the elements -- he discovered within himself the spirit to go on and relied on the skills learned during a lifetime of preparing for the unthinkable. 

From O’Grady’s compelling life-and-death story, audiences learn how to adapt, change and succeed even under the most daunting and trying of circumstances. Even while isolated behind enemy lines, Captain O’Grady remained a member of a carefully drilled team. He details the preparation, teamwork and leadership responsible for his survival and for his dramatic rescue by the U.S. Marines — qualities that are crucial to success in every facet of business and life. The ingenuity and fortitude that kept him alive in hostile territory for six days now inspires audiences to their own groundbreaking achievements.


Return With Honor
Scott O'Grady speaks about his incredible true-life struggle to survive in the hostile territory of war-torn Bosnia. Scott O'Grady's story is an inspirational tale of courage, faith and patriotism by an American hero.
