Colonel Ed Hubbard at Whitehall Community Center
October 11, 2015
When talking about being in the “Hanoi Hilton”, Hubbard says that very little he learned in the Air Force or life experience prepared him for incarceration, but every day he spent in a cell taught him that survival is possible, even in the direst situations.
In 1985, he began a public speaking campaign so that others could benefit from the lessons he learned in 2,420 days of captivity; by developing the right state of mind anyone can overcome any obstacle, survive any ordeal, and reach any goal.
