About Whiskey and Warriors - Bonds of Brotherhood forged at Black Hawk Down

Whiskey and Warriors - Bonds of Brotherhood forged at Black Hawk Down

Presented by Clay Othic and John Collett, Three Rangers Foundation

Join us to hear the real story of the bonds of brotherhood, forged by service and sacrifice in the US Army’s elite 75th Ranger Regiment and the historic Black Hawk Down battle of October 3rd, 1993.  Two of the Rangers, Clay Othic and John Collett, will speak about their backgrounds, their service in Mogadishu and their two-decade long journeys that culminated with a whiskey venture created to help other veterans. 

About the Speakers:

Clay Othic and John Collett are co-owners of Three Rangers, a premium spirits company, and serve on the Board for Three Rangers Foundation, a non-profit committed to empowering veterans.  Clay and his wife Mara live near Sheridan, Oregon where he splits his time working on various entrepreneurial ventures and keeping active on their small farm.  John, medically retired from the military, stays healthy through a regime of yoga and helping others in Chicago, IL.

About Kennedy School History Pub

Kennedy School History Pub

These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
