In this episode of David Novak’s podcast “How Leaders Lead”, David talks to Lt. Col. Dan Rooney, Air Force fighter pilot and founder and CEO of Folds of Honor, a nonprofit that provides scholarships to families of America’s fallen or disabled military and first responders.

Dan knows about challenges. He served three combat tours in Iraq and has more than 1,800 hours of F-16 flight time. His experience can only be earned flying through a dust storm in Iraq going 1,000 miles an hour with the wing of another aircraft six inches away. 

In this conversation, David and Dan talk how to prepare for the moments when you’re challenged and how to come through challenges even stronger.
