He’s also seen and heard nationally as a guest and host on numerous television networks and programs including ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, MSNBC, and The Rush Limbaugh Program. Jeff has been nationally and internationally recognized for creating groundbreaking television and talk radio broadcasts from Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Japan. Jeff also completed the first-ever live talk radio broadcasts at sea with the U.S. Navy aboard the aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70).
The extraordinary life Jeff lives makes him a frequent keynote speaker and lecturer to universities, businesses, associations and non-profits. His presentations and speeches are applauded for their authenticity, raw emotion, and uplifting messages. With more than twenty years embedding in military commands, combat zones and natural disaster zones around the world, Jeff now also serves a highly respected, uniquely qualified politics and communications subject matter expert at the U.S. Army Combined Arms Center at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas and he travels extensively teaching in U.S. military commands.
Jeff has a deep and abiding respect for America’s military families and he assists and supports several non-profit organizations who serve military members and Gold Star families, including Honor Our Marines, the Seven Stars Foundation, the American Fallen Soldiers Project, Defenders of Freedom and the Cavanaugh Flight Museum.
