The National Advisory Group (NAG) is proud to announce that Rocky Sickmann, a former executive with Anheuser-Busch and survivor of the Iran Hostage Crisis, now a vice president with Folds of Honor, will deliver the keynote address at NAG on Sept. 9.
Rocky Sickmann, who retired from Anheuser-Busch in 2016 and is a survivor of the Iran Hostage Crisis, understands the dangers facing our military servicemen and women. That’s why Sickmann joined Folds of Honor in 2016 as a Senior Vice President.
With his involvement in Folds of Honor, Sickmann is able to educate and encourage others to support the Folds of Honor mission.
“In 1980, eight heroic servicemen died attempting to free me and the rest of the Iranian Hostages. Their sacrifice is one I will never forget. I know first-hand that freedom doesn’t come without sacrifice. For that I am incredibly honored to serve with an organization that is dedicated to helping families who’s loved ones make the ultimate sacrifice for our country,” Sickmann said.
The National Advisory Group (NAG) is proud to announce that Sickmann will be the keynote speaker at the 2018 NAG Conference in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. Sickmann will share his experiences and educate attendees on the work Folds of Honor is doing for veterans and active duty military personnel.
Sickmann served as a U.S. Marine at the American Embassy in Tehran, Iran in 1979, during which a mob of Iranian militants took Sickmann and 53 others hostage for 444 days.
Following his service in the Marines, he joined Anheuser-Busch, where he focused on market penetration among the Military in various roles; most recently, he was the director of military and industry affairs for the company.
NAG attendees will also be able to support Folds of Honor by purchasing Challenge Coins for $13, which represents the 13 folds to a flag. All money raised will go to Folds of Honor scholarships.
