Retired (again) and living in a 35-foot Winnebago, Glenn is now free to
enjoy the opportunity of bringing information and entertainment to
groups of people around the country. Glenn brings his teaching
experience in the military, at the college level and in high schools to
the body of knowledge that he has gained in the Marine Corps, Air
Force, the non-profit community and the private sector. Listed here are
just some of the presentations that he has made or has prepared for
select audiences. Given sufficient time and information he can tailor a
presentation for your group. Using the simple definition of an expert
(someone from 50 miles away with a briefcase) he can provide you with
expertise on a wide range of subjects. Email us with what, where
