Leadership Wins the War

This program will cover and recognize examples of great leaders who served our country and military at crucial times in our nation’s history, and contributed significantly to our victories.  It will include illustrations that strong leadership, and leaders that succeed in difficult circumstances and at pivotal moments in time, are men and women that come from a wide range and diversity of backgrounds and experiences.
  • The American Role in Winning World War I
    Learn about many famous leaders – athletes, military men, poets, journalists, actors, etc. – who fought, and why the U.S. was critical in winning the war. 
    Dr. Geoffrey Wawro, Professor of History; Director, Military History Center, University of North Texas
 
  • A History of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in WWII
    Learn about the Women’s Auxiliary Ferrying Squadron and Women’s Flying Training Detachment that became the WASP.  How this important service line started small and grew to 1,102 Women Airforce Service Pilots who flew wingtip to wingtip with their male counterparts and were just as vital to the war effort.
    Carol Cain, Vice President, National WASP WWII Museum

On November 9, the Saturday prior to Veterans Day, the University of North Texas will host the 37th Annual Alfred and Johanna Hurley Military History Seminar.  This year’s topic is “D-Day, New Insights on its 75th Anniversary.”  The seminar will be held at the Verona Villa in Frisco starting at 8:00 a.m. and running until early afternoon.  Tickets are available through UNT at https://untuniontickets.universitytickets.com/w/event.aspx?id=1396.
 
This seminar series is approaching its fourth decade, and offers cutting-edge discussions on issues of national security and military history every fall.  The seminar was conceived by UNT President and retired Air Force General Dr. Al Hurley in 1983.  Year-in and year-out for 36 years and counting, the Hurley Seminar balances in-depth discussions of current wars with new interpretations of important historical events.  This year’s speakers are Peter Caddick-Adams and James Holland who are internationally acclaimed and award-winning historians, educators, and authors with extensive expertise regarding World War II and D-Day.

The Modern Veteran: From bin Laden to the Boardroom

Today, the United States finds itself in a unique position with a small group of veterans to call on to gain an advantage in today's hypercompetitive business environment, yet many businesses don't understand this resource or attempt to use it to their advantage.  Why is this and how can we correct this disservice to America's bottom line?  Adam Kraft will weave his perspectives of the strengths of military and intelligence personnel to inform us about the benefits of a conscious program of hiring veterans.
 
Adam Kraft graduated from the U.S. Military Academy in 2000 and had a distinguished career in the U.S. Army where he earned multiple awards to include the Bronze Star with one Oak Leaf Cluster.  He was medically retired as a Major after being hospitalized for 18 months for several ailments and injuries sustained overseas.  He then served in the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) where he distinguished himself in multiple roles, culminating as the Senior Intelligence Collection Strategist for the Middle East and Africa.
