Being In The Military
July 1st – July 8th
CrowdQuestion is a new social platform that is focused on connecting crowds through Q&A The Right Way.
These panels are focused on providing interaction on fascinating subjects that inspire and educate
through Q&A. We are hosting a military-themed panel in honor of the noble service members of our military
for Independence Day.
Starting July 1st, we will be conducting a panel for those interested in various aspects of being in
the military. The Being In The Military Panel will feature five panelists who have or are currently
serving in various branches of the United States military throughout different times. Ask questions
regarding general or specific concepts surrounding serving in the military, joining the military, their
experiences, and more. This diverse panel allows for a wide array of answers to questions for various
situations and different times throughout our history.
How It Works
CrowdQuestion’s Panels will be the first panels to be conducted online rather than in-person enabling
participation to be more significant. Participating in the panel will not require any in-person or
conference-call interaction. Members of the crowd can ask written and audio-based questions for one
week leading up to the panelist answer period.
To engage in this powerful panel as part of the crowd, join CrowdQuestion for free on any device.
After joining, search for and follow CrowdQuestion’s Channel. Every CrowdQuestion panel event will be
conducted through this channel. The events will appear on your My Events calendar.
Each question can be asked in a general format for all panelists or be directed to one or more panelists.
The crowd members can give all questions a green thumbs-up. As they give their favorite questions a green
thumbs-up, the list will begin to display the questions the crowd is most curious about at the top of the
Panelists may answer questions as they come in, but are given a full week to answer questions after the
week of asking questions has finished. Through CrowdQuestion, the panelists can review the list of
questions and answer them. The panelists will answer the question in written format.
As questions are answered, they are displayed in the answered questions list. Click on the answered
questions button to see questions that have been answered. Something compelling about panels conducted
using CrowdQuestion is that the information is displayed forever. The questions and the panelist's
answers will be available for those interested to see at any time on any device. This allows for your
powerful insights to keep on providing value to others.
Let’s Introduce Our Powerful Panelists:
Senior Airman (E-4) United States Air Force Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska
I'm currently a Senior Airman(E-4) in the USAF. I enlisted in January 2014 after spending over a year in
the DEP. I'm currently still active because I signed a six-year contract. I've been a maintainer on the
Boeing C-17 up at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska for just over three years now.
Before that, I spent two years in training to become a Combat controller, but alas failed out of
training. I spent nearly two years stationed in San Antonio, TX; three months at Pope Army Airfield,
NC; and spent a few weeks at Fairchild AFB as well as Ft. Benning and as previously said been up here
in Anchorage, Ak for three years now.
This will be my one and only enlistment since I'm set to separate in January. I joined the Air Force with
about as high of motivation and sense of duty to our country as anyone can, but as the years ran on its
all changed, and I've become much more jaded. I would never shy anyone away from military service, but
I think everyone should know that for every good attribute of the military there is an equally horrible.

USAF Elite Special Operations Instructor Pilot | USAF Command Pilot w/ 4,000+ hours flying time;
2,000+ hours in combat | Keynote Speaker
After two decades in the military, 4,000+ hours of flying time and 2,000+ hours in combat, a powerful
truth becomes apparent: Trust and leadership are interconnected - one cannot function without the
From my earliest days in the USAF Academy to today, I’ve been on a mission to expand my knowledge
in these areas and share it with people and organizations of all types. I’ve condensed the things I’ve
learned into a principle I call, "No Fail Trust™️."
When you're flying a night mission fifty feet above the ground, delivering desperately needed
ammunition to overrun ground forces, you cannot fail. Those personnel have asked for your help
and they're trusting you to succeed; otherwise, they die. That's No Fail Trust™️.
This same principle applies to organizations of all types. Your coworkers are trusting you to do your
job effectively. Failure could mean losses to the company, even the loss of someone's job. Lives can be
affected by your action or inaction. The way we avoid this in the military is through extensive
training, trust in clear processes, and trust in the people following those processes. These three
elements are as applicable to an organization as they are the military.
Through my work as a keynote speaker on leadership and trust, I help organizations implement these
principles to create a culture of no fail trust, leading to more empowered workplaces and greatly
enhanced customer experiences.
