50 - Airborne Leader l A Discussion With A Paratrooper Turned Statesman

Chris Gibson had been an All American Paratrooper for two decades.  He commanded All American Paratroopers in Iraq in 2005 and later commanded our Falcon Brigade, leading the brigade into Haiti in response to the catastrophic earthquake there.

He ended a promising career headed toward the top of our Army to run for elected office, representing a district in New York for eight years.

Chris shares his story with us, describes what drove him to run for office, and how the values and attributes of the 82nd Airborne Division carried him in his post-military life.
