Prior to retiring in September 2018, he was Commander, Air Force Global Strike Command and Commander, Air Forces Strategic - Air, U.S. Strategic Command, Barksdale Air Force Base. Rand is a highly decorated four star General and has received many awards and decorations including the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal (with two bronze oak leaf clusters), Defense Superior Service Medal, Legion of Merit (with two bronze oak leaf cluster), Bronze Star Medal, and many more.

In October 2018, Rand was named CEO of the Gary Sinise Foundation. The Foundation serves our nation by honoring our defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need by creating and supporting unique programs designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen, and build communities.  

In addition to guest speakers, like General Rand, we will have subject matter experts in the areas of digital and social media, today’s consumer, and the military resale market.
