Dallas Leadership Series Speaker 2013

Admiral Patrick Walsh USN (Ret) spoke about “National Security Issues Currently Facing the United States” at a Dallas AIF Leadership Forum event hosted by AIF Board Member, Tom Codd at The Petroleum Club.

Admiral Walsh is a four-star admiral who served as Vice Chief of Naval Operations and commanded the US Pacific Fleet at the time of the Japanese Tsunami.  His talk was riveting and provided a detailed historical context for many of America’s present military and political challenges.  Those gathered included many new faces, as well as American Ireland Fund Board members Don Hanratty and John Tillotson.
