Eric Greitens: JCC BookFest Author

The Heart and the Fist: The keynote event in the New Mexico Jewish community’s 2012 celebration of the written word.

When he was a Rhodes scholar at Oxford, Eric Greitens felt he had an obligation to be part of a military capable of preventing genocide, and that he had an obligation to help restore lives, livelihoods and purpose to those who had been mangled by the machinery of war. The NavySEALS was his "fist" and The Mission Continues, a non-profit he started to challenge returning vets to serve and lead, is his "heart." As a person who has "walked the walk," his message is particularly meaningful for young people. 

You can learn more about Eric Greitens at his website. But wait - Eric Greitens was a recent guest on The Colbert Report! You can watch that interview here.
