About the event

Join us for a unique and valuable opportunity with Liz Russell, a distinguished veteran with over 40 years of combined U.S. military and federal civilian service. 

Liz will provide unparalleled insights into the Department of Defense's personnel recovery operations. 

Discover how the U.S. government prepares its warfighters and allied forces for challenging missions and learn about the protocols in place should the worst-case scenario occur, ensuring the safe return of personnel from isolating events, including captivity.

Meet Liz Russell, whose journey began with an active and adventurous childhood. Enlisting in the Air Force in 1977, Liz underwent extensive training that eventually allowed her to train military personnel facing high-risk situations. 

She became one of the first two women to successfully complete and teach Combat Survival Training. 

After years of field and resistance training at Fairchild AFB in Washington, she earned an officer's commission in 1989. In 1997, Liz retired from the Air Force to develop specialized training for the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency.
