Keynote Speaker Captain Mike Penn

“As a Navy Fighter Pilot, I learned the meaning of leadership and teamwork. As a POW in Hanoi, North Vietnam, I learned a person can go 30 days without food, six days without water, but less than one day without hope. It was there I learned the true meaning of Never Give Up.”  These words were spoken by Captain Mike Penn, Chief Pilot for Southwest Airlines.

Kingwood Area Republican Women have invited Captain Penn to be our Guest Speaker for Military Appreciation Day on November 14, 2018, at Walden Country Club, 18100 Walden Forest Drive, Humble, Texas 77346.  Captain Penn worked his way through college playing in a rock band and worked full time as a police officer. His goal was to fly a jet fighter in the US Navy, land on an aircraft carrier and fly faster than the speed of sound. He exceeded his goals by flying the A-4 Skyhawk, A-7E Corsair II and the F-4J Phantom.  He is a Distinguished Naval Graduate and lived the movies “An Officer and a Gentleman” and “Top Gun”. Captain Penn enjoyed the life of a commercial airline pilot, check pilot, chief pilot and flight manager at the most successful airline in the world, Southwest Airlines.

Captain Penn’s military decorations include the: Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star, with combat “V”, POW Medal, Air Medal with Combat “V”, Navy Commendation Medal with Combat “V” and Two Purple Hearts. 

Beyond and above any and all professional experiences, he has enjoyed, is the life and time with his wife, three children and four grandchildren.  Although he is professionally, Captain Mike Penn, the role in his life he cherished the most is simply known as husband to his great wife, JJ and “Dad” to his kids and “Pop” to his grandchildren. Captain Penn’s keynote speeches will exemplify the importance of leadership, humility, softening your heart and P.O.S. – Positively Outrageous Service that exceeds expectations.

All military persons are invited to attend as our guests.  We need to know if you are coming for lunch by making your reservation with Betty Newton, Vice President, Programs/Reservations by calling 713-444-5006.  You can also go to www.kingwoodrepublicanwomen.org to make your reservation.
