TOUGH TALKS: Resilience with Dennis Volpe

Our guest today was The Naval Commander of the Oliver Hazard Perry Class Guided Missile Frigate. It was a DREAM career. One that he aspired to and worked tirelessly for his entire life. They were deployed in The Black Sea during the 2014 Sochi Olympics directly off the coast of Russia. They were so close to shore, they could see the Olympic Torch – as well as some other Russian “assets” who were clearly interested in their presence there. In one minute he was living his dream. And in literally the next minute his entire life changed – and his entire identity went with it. Until he re-created himself.

His name is Dennis Volpe and he’s going to share his amazing story of crisis and resilience.
