Memorial Day

20051013170942_1uss_cole-6On Memorial Day, Dave looks back at one of his favorite Memorial Day guests, CDR Kirk Lippod, Captain of the USS Cole when she was attacked. The attack killed 17 sailors and injured another 39. Commander Lippold talk about some of the Sailors who died that day and how he and the crew have moved forward.

This interview was done in May of 2012, and remains Dave’s favorite Memorial Day interview. It was very emotional, the tape had to be paused several times to allow for a moment to collect ourselves. This particular podcast contains portions of the interview that were never aired, which includes Dave talking with CDR Lippold off air about their experiences and those who helped to developed their own leadership.
