Vista Food Truck 5:00 – 6:45 pm
A master storyteller and former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) executive, Chuck Banks shares first-hand experiences from 9/11, the CIA mobilization to Afghanistan, and the patriotism and partnerships between the CIA, the US Military, Law Enforcement and First Responders, and why that still matters today. Chuck started his military career 40 years ago at Irwin Army Hospital at Fort Riley, KS, and enrolled in his first college classes at Kansas State University. After five years in the Army, Chuck began a 28 year CIA career, with three tours abroad largely focused on covert action, and was appointed to the senior position of Deputy Director of Logistics at CIA just weeks before 9/11. He retired in 2012 and started High-Stakes Logistics, consulting on national security initiatives.
