The Great Man In Air Cargo

The Great Man In Air Cargo

What have you been up to?
     I’m still spending time helping the USG with various projects, as well as exploring ways to improve the situation in Afghanistan. I will have a book out in the next few months about what my team did in Iraq and then follow it up with what we did in Afghanistan.      Hopefully it will get some people to rethink our tactics. I am also trying to spend time with my grandchildren, my 2 daughters - Robin and Heather, my friends and wife, Shari. And when I have a spare moment I try to spend it outdoors hunting and fishing.

What are you most passionate about?
    The things I am passionate about are first, the health and well-being of my family.     The next is doing everything I can to help the U.S. end the current costly conflicts and help stop possible future conflicts, to protect our military as well as our police and fire fighters who have to react to terrorist activity. I also do my best to support groups who help the children who are affected by the misery we have all created for people in this world. Last, but not least, is the health of our airline industry, and the effect the fast-moving changes we are seeing is having on it.

What's on your playlist?
     I try to read and listen to college course tapes on history, current events and all religions and cultures. I have always believed that knowledge is power and do my best to absorb as much as possible.

Name three qualities that got you to where you are today.
     You really don’t need three qualities but only one. I wake up every morning and look in the mirror and say - “I’m going to make this the best day of my life.” Then I ask god to help me do it. Now in order to do this you must know how to handle stress, preplan as much as possible and when things go wrong don’t look to blame others but make it your mission to fix it. One of the best comments I heard years ago was “When hell freezes over, get an ice pick and chop through the ice.” Never give up!

What change would you like to see in air cargo?
     I think I covered a lot of that in my many Trump Effect articles. But put simply I would like the industry to work together in areas they legally can, with the single aim of providing their customers with the best quality of service for the area and price they choose to purchase.
     Even though I disagreed with Bob Crandall on a few issues, what I respected most about him was he took responsibility for his actions. He wasn’t afraid to take an informed risk and he stood up for what he believed was right for his employees and stockholders.

What do you love most about your work?
    The challenges, the excitement and the support I can offer to others.

If you could solve one problem in the world, what would it be?
    Stop killing each other in the name of God.
