Navy SEAL Clint Bruce will speak on leadership at Washington and Lee University on Tuesday, May 7, at 7 p.m. in Stackhouse Theater, Elrod Commons. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. The talk is open to the public, and no tickets are required.
A graduate of the United States Naval Academy and a decorated athlete, Bruce entered the Navy SEALs after leaving the National Football League where he had played with the Baltimore Ravens and then the New Orleans Saints.
During Bruce's tenure in the SEALs, he operated in the Pacific and Middle East in multiple leadership positions prior to, and after, 9/11.
Bruce is the founder and president of Trident Response Group, a risk and threat management firm headquartered in Dallas since 2005. Trident was founded in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina upon completion of a successful rescue operation.
While serving with the Naval Special Warfare Community, Bruce developed a deep knowledge of defense technology. In both national and international environments, he was involved in the development and application of new assets and technology that enhanced detection, communication and battle-space awareness. He has worked on hybrid vehicular and body armor efforts and the application of nano-technology to existing and new materials.
