U.S. Navy Lieutenant Shaeffer was working in the Pentagon on Sept. 11, 2001, when American flight 77 crashed through his office and took the lives of many of his co-workers. Burned over nearly 50 percent of his body, he escaped to safety and waged a grueling struggle to recover. Retired from military service, he was selected to serve as one of 26 professional staff members of the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States — the 9/11 Commission. After that, he served critical roles working in our nation’s highest priority counterterrorism and counterproliferation missions. Today, Shaeffer helps the Wounded Warrior Project make a difference in the lives of wounded service members and their families.
Shaeffer will tell his personal story of service, sacrifice, determination and courage.The program and refreshments are free, but space is limited. RSVP to 877-732-4246 or www.RetireAtMountMiguel.com/rsvp.
