Best-selling Co-Author, Impossible Odds: The Kidnapping of Jessica Buchanan & Her Dramatic Rescue By SEAL Team Six
FEE RANGE: Please Inquire
TRAVELS FROM: District of Columbia
On October 25, 2011, Jessica Buchanan and a colleague were kidnapped at gunpoint by Somali land pirates and held for 93 days. On the day of her kidnapping, she silently said to herself, “Some do come out alive, the numbers are small but they do exist.” On January 25, 2012 members of SEAL Team Six attacked the heavily-armed captors killing all and airlifting Buchanan and her colleague to safety. Through this experience, Buchanan learned that the human spirit is indomitable. Today in a solo or joint presentation with her husband, they share with audiences the tools they quickly learned to find strength to face any situation no matter how large or small the challenges or obstacles. They learned first-hand how to remain hopeful, dig deep even when you feel completely empty of any resources and trust your instincts as all can find the inner strength to face any situation. Buchanan works actively as an ambassador for the Navy SEAL Foundation; supporting families of active duty SEALs and families of SEALs that have died in the line of duty.
