Retired Navy Admiral Richard Truly is a rare breed.  Truly has been a test pilot, engineer, administrator and astronaut for NASA.  As one of the first Shuttle Commanders, he expanded the frontiers of space flight, then helped rebuild NASA after the Challenger disaster. 

Please join Jack Mintz at a breakfast event featuring Admiral Truly as he offers observations on the value of space travel and exploration and the need for a long-term vision for funding those initiatives.
