KEYNOTE: Lieutenant Colonel Robert J. Darling, United States Marine Corps (Ret.)
​A Crisis Leadership Presentation

On September 11, 2001, Lieutenant Colonel Darling was working in the White House Military Office to coordinate airlift assets for the President’s evacuation to an undisclosed site. However, he was quickly recruited to provide his military expertise and became a key liaison between the Vice President, National Security Advisor, and the Pentagon, working directly with the National Command Authority to respond to the terrorist attacks. Lt. Colonel Darling witnessed first-hand the enormity of the crisis leadership decisions that were made that day on behalf of all Americans. You won't want to miss his story.
