Eric Greitens Challenges Citizens
On Friday evening White House Fellow, Navy Seal Commander and Rhodes Scholar, Eric Geitens returned to Missouri Boys State to speak to the Citizens. Eric brings a motivational yet challenging message for the Citizens to take their new knowledge and experience back to their home towns and put it to use. He encourages everyone to become active and volunteer in their communities so their example may inspire others to do the same.
