Schedule Jimmy To Speak

Jimmy addressing soldiers

Jimmy Blackmon has led high risk missions all over the world including serving as the air mission commander on the operation that netted #2 and #3 in the famous Iraqi deck of cards. Amazingly, Jimmy also served as the aviation commander during the battles in which four Medals of Honor were earned in Afghanistan – in the very valleys where the attacks of 9-11 were planned and rehearsed. Having achieved impressive results, Jimmy understands how to navigate the complexities of the 21st century, build cohesive teams with purpose, and motivate America’s millennial generation.

Jimmy’s natural storytelling ability bring his experiences alive. From funny, behind the scenes soldier stories to high stakes crisis management in combat, Jimmy shares colorful experiences that are sure to both educate and entertain your audience, but Jimmy is far more than a proven leader and entertaining speaker.

Jimmy is an IBO World Champion in archery. He made a U.S. Armed Forces World Cross Country Team and has run a 2:33 marathon. Jimmy will motivate your team to define success, set goals, and maximize their own personal potential. As a keynote speaker or providing an in-depth developmental seminar, Jimmy can help make a difference in your organization.

Having been born the son of a humble cotton mill worker in northern Georgia, Jimmy’s story is proof that the American Dream lives. He enlisted in the Army Reserves in 1986 with the dream of a bright future. He graduated from North Georgia College in 1991, and was commissioned a second lieutenant in aviation. In the thirty years that have followed, Jimmy has served in various command and staff positions throughout the Army. He has led American soldiers during two tours in the Balkans, two tours in Iraq, and two tours of duty in Afghanistan. Jimmy spent twelve years of his career in the famed 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), where he commanded Task Force Pale Horse from 2008 – 2010 and the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade from 2012 – 2015 where he led over 3,500 of American’s sons and daughters in combat in Afghanistan.

  1. Just getting some numbers together for a possible future request. We are having an event in Oscoda, MI, Operation LZ Michigan Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans on July 8, 9, 10, 2016 but doubt we will have the funds to add anything more at this time as we are strictly donation funded event, a 501c and the entire event is FREE and open to Veterans, Vietnam and otherwise, family members and the general public. But we are thinking of doing quite possibly another event in the future. Please send me approximate costs for your speaking engagement. Proud member of Ruthless Riders Assoc, was a CE and Gunner with A Trp, 7/17 Cav from 68 – 69 in Vietnam. Thank you for your service to our country and for serving with such a distinguished group as the Palehorse. I am not sure if you were privy to seeing it at one of the reunions or not that we had in Nashville and ultimately at Ft Campbell, but I own the Ruthless Rider Tribute Motorcycle that also pays tribute to the Palehorse as well and I had it at both reunions. Respectfully, Joseph A. Brinn, CW3 US Army Retired. Co-Chair, Operation LZ Michigan Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans.

  2. Happy Independence Day Jimmy!! Gerry DeLang here. Had the pleasure of being in audience back in February at CC of Orlando at the Vistage breakfast where you rocked it!! A couple of things.
    1. Have great interest in exploring adding your program to our leadership training
    2. Wonder if you can send me the Power Point presentation that you made at the breakfast, and I believe offered up to us if we were interested.
    Peace and infinite miracles,
