Special Guest Speaker Tim Vining, USAF Colonel, Retired
During the Gathering of Legends event, guests will get a rare treat to listen to special guest speaker, Colonel Tim Vining, give a first-hand account when he was commander of the K2 outpost in Operation Enduring Freedom, a key effort behind continuing the fight of Al-Qaida insurgents in Afghanistan. Colonel Vining’s presentation, “Fighting the ‘Other War’”, features the men and women who worked tirelessly behind the scenes, as well as a view of Uzbek civilians who eagerly supported the Americans stationed in their country.
