Cargo Logistics Solutions
The Great Man In Air Cargo
What have you been up to?
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
Name three qualities that got you to where you are
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.
