Veterans Voices: Operation Eagle Claw

63 people held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, Iran, an unprecedented joint operation and a series of unfortunate events. These are only some of the attributes surrounding Operation Eagle Claw, one of the most influential missions that shaped how the military conducts operations even to this day. Join us on April 23 to speak to our expert panel about this historic rescue mission; all that went right and all that went wrong. We will have Major General David L. Grange, U.S. Army (Retired), Lieutenant Colonel Lewis H. Burruss, Jr., U.S. Army (Retired), and the Godfather of Special Operations Communications, Chief Warrant Officer Four Paul Zeisman, U.S. Army (Retired).
