Lt. Col. Dan Rooney is a United States Air Force fighter pilot, PGA professional, patriotic philanthropist, and author. He is best known for founding Folds of Honor, a leading non-profit organization that provides educational scholarships for children and spouses of fallen or disabled military service members and first responders.

Rooney’s life calling of “inspiring people to help people'' is made obvious by his variety of roles. A USA Today bestselling author whose titles are “A Patriot's Calling: Living Life Between Fear and Faith” and “Fly Into the Wind: How to Harness Faith and Fearlessness on Your Ascent to Greatness,” he is a highly sought-after motivational speaker who has addressed over 1,000 corporations and groups across America.

A two-time recipient of the Top Gun award, Rooney has also received the Air Force Commendation Medal, Air Medal, Anti-terrorism Medal, Combat Readiness Medal, and Air Expeditionary Medal. For his service and patriotism, he was presented the White House’s “Presidential Volunteer Service Award'' by President George W. Bush, as well as the Air National Guard’s “Distinguished Service Medal,” the “Directors Service Award,” and the Ellis Island “Medal of Honor.”

Rooney will inspire you during his talk, “CAVU: Live Unlimited.” CAVU is an aviation term that stands for “ceiling and visibility unlimited.” Translated, it describes the perfect conditions in which to be a pilot. His discussion will incorporate leadership, fighter pilot lessons, Folds of Honor, unlocking talents through faith, and embracing resistance with a resilient spirit.
