Episode Summary

This week, Jon Murchison, Blackpoint’s founder and CEO, welcomes retired Brigadier General Jonathan George to our podcast. He has had an impressive and extensive career, including roles as pilot-in-command and deputy commanding general, and was on assignment to the White House twice. Prior to retirement, he was the acting Senior Director of Defense Policy & Strategy for the National Security Council (NSC) in Washington, D.C, as his last military assignment.

In this episode, General George talks about his staff assignments including his time with the U.S. Air Force and in Afghanistan, serving under Presidents Reagan, G.H.W. Bush, and Obama, and the national decision-making process involved in all his years. He and Jon also discuss staying on top of technology and establishing the right vision as a leader. And of course, he talks about what it’s really like flying a U-2, B-1, and B-2 jet. Be sure to keep an eye out for part two of their conversation in a couple of weeks!
