Scotty Smiley to speak, sign books

“His service to our country and unyielding reliance on his faith is a true inspiration,” said Tom Phillips, vice president of the Billy Graham Library. “Our hope is all those who attend the breakfast will be emboldened in their Christian faith by his story.”
After the ticketed breakfast, the recently appointed Army Major will sign copies of his book, “Hope Unseen” – which documents his life before and after a suicide bomber’s destructive blast resulted in his world turning dark – in a public event beginning at 10 a.m.
Smiley was the recipient of the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart for his service in Iraq. He has earned his MBA from Duke, taught at West Point, won an ESPY as Best Outdoor Athlete and is father to three children.
