Tom Glenn will recount his experience as an undercover signals intelligence operative in April 1975 when the North Vietnamese attacked the city. Glenn will discuss the risks he was forced to take and his choice to disobey orders from the U.S. Ambassador, Graham Martin, in order to save the lives of his American subordinates. Tom Glenn has also worked as an intelligence operative, a musician, a linguist (seven languages), a cryptologist, a government executive, a care-giver for the dying, and a leadership coach. Glenn was the Dean of the Management Department at the National Cryptologic School and has had various pieces of his work published and reprinted by Atticus Review, Cryptologic Quarterly, the New York Times, and more. Glenn is the recipient of the Civilian Meritorious Medal.
