Regional Breakfast – First Responders Appreciation Breakfast Featuring SSG Eric Maddox

February 7, 2019
7:30 to 9:30 AM
at The Ron Pearson Center, 5820 Westown Parkway, West Des Moines, IA 50266

Everyone has seen the footage: a heavily bearded Saddam Hussein blinking under the bright lights of infantry cameras, dazed to find himself in U.S. Army custody. Yet while the breaking news was broadcast around the world, the story of the remarkable events leading up to that moment on December 13, 2003, had yet to be fully told.

Come hear the inside story of the search for Saddam Hussein as told by SSG Eric Maddox, the solider who masterminded his capture.

Thousands of troops, special operations forces, and intelligence operations had scoured the countryside in a massive effort to find him. No expense was spared, no lead unpursued, no rock unturned. Of all the “High-Value Targets” identified on the army’s famous deck of playing cards, Saddam was priority number one: The Ace of Spades. This is the gripping, moment-by-moment account of the historic mission that brought down Black List #1.

Registration & Networking begins at 7:30 AM with the Programming beginning at 8 AM.
