Our speaker, Major Brian Shul, USAF (Retired) Pilot, Patriot, Photographer and Author will share his unique story.  Born in Quantico, VA in 1948, Brian graduated East Carolina University in 1970 with a degree in History and Anthropology.  After 20 years as an Air Force fighter pilot, Brian Shul today is an accomplished author, speaker, and photographer. 

            Flying close air support missions in Viet Nam, he flew 212 missions before his aircraft was shot down.  Severely burned in the crash he was given little chance of survival.  He spent one year in hospitals and endured 15 reconstructive surgeries. After countless hours of physical therapy, Brian surprised his doctors and returned to flying jets. 

After becoming an Airshow demonstration pilot in the A-10, Brian also taught at the TOPGUN School and culminated his Air Force career with selection to fly our nation’s premier spy plane, the SR-71.  This was a remarkable accomplishment considering that it required an astronaut physical to qualify for the plane that routinely flew above 95% of the earth’s atmosphere.  Only 93 Air Force pilots in history ever flew the SR-71, still the fastest plane ever built.  Brian flew the Blackbird for 4 years and was the pilot who provided key photos of Libyan terrorist camps to President Reagan during the Libyan Crisis in 1986.

             Brian retired from the Air Force in 1990, and pursued his writing interests. He was the first SR-71 pilot ever to write a book about flying that plane, illustrated with his own photography.  It earned him the Aviation Book of the Year title from the Smithsonian.  He has written four other aviation books, for which he did all the flying, writing, and photography.  He is the only man in America to have flown extensively with both the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels in the making of those books.

         Brian’s remarkable comeback story has inspired audiences nationwide as today he has become one of America’s most popular keynote speakers.  His message of living fearlessly and making the most of each day resonates with men and women from all walks of life.  He was a recipient of the 2002 National Spirit of Freedom Award, and recently was only the 28th person to receive the Crystal Eagle Award from the National Aero Club.  He is an Honorary Paul Harris Fellow, and last summer was inducted into the Air Force Hall of Fame.  Brian is the owner of Gallery One in Marysville, California where his nationally acclaimed photography is on display.
