An American Hero Takes the Stage

Afternoon Keynote - Sean Parnell


Hart Energy is honored to welcome one of the most decorated combat veterans in the War on Terror, Captain Sean Parnell (U.S. Army, retired)

This great American warrior and New York Times best-selling author (Man of War) will share intricate details of how he led one of the fiercest and most effective fighting units in modern military history.  Sean Parnell led his platoon – “The Outlaws” - against attacks from the Taliban, Haqqanni, Al Qaida and Pakistani militaries on the Afghanistan border. On June 10, 2006, the Outlaws battled in the most rugged terrain on the planet—the towering Hindu Kush Mountains -- while being outnumbered and outgunned by a foe whose avowed purpose was to overrun his platoon and provide filmed footage of the deaths as Al Qaida propaganda. Parnell suffered untreated head and neurological wounds as he led his troops into victory. Don’t miss this exclusive opportunity to hear first-hand what happened that day as he was outnumbered 10-1 but emerged victorious over the Al Qaida-led assault.

This special address will be open to all conference and exhibit hall attendees at no additional cost.
