I first read of Capt Gerald Coffee, US Navy Retd, in Jack Cranfield’s book ” How To Get From Where You Are To Where You Want To Be”. This book, to me , is a wonderful compilation of inspirational stories and motivational tools.
Many years ago, in 1966, Capt. Coffee was shot down over North Viet Nam in the Viet Nam war and spent more than 7 years as a Prisoner of War. A richly decorated fighter pilot, Capt. Coffee has reached out to thousands with his inspirational story of how he survived all kinds of horrors in POW camps. He is considered one of America’s top inspirational speakers.
