Learn About Our Guest Speaker
Senior Chief Petty Officer "Mike" Day served twenty-one years as a United States Navy SEAL.
On what would be his final combat mission as a Navy SEAL, Mike was shot twenty-seven times at close range and absorbed a grenade blast. Despite being severely wounded Mike managed to neutralize four enemy combatants, secure two prisoners, rescue six woman and children and evacuate himself to an awaiting helicopter.
Mike's greatest work came after his retirement when he led, inspired, and cared for over 300 of his fellow warriors as a Special Operation Command Wounded Warrior Advocate. Mike continues to lead and train other Military Special Operations personnel and law enforcement professionals as a tactical training instructor. Mike speaks at corporations and schools on the power of the human connection and developing resiliency skills. He is a frequent guest speaker on behalf of the Navy SEAL Foundation and several other non-profit organizations.
Mike military awards include the Navy Cross, two Bronze Stars, one with Valor, a Purple Heart and number of other accommodations.
