- Adventure with Purpose
Best-selling author Alvin Townley risked everything on a dream when he embarked on an odyssey to discover stories of leadership, service, and adventure with a higher purpose. His travels have taken him around the world and led to his nationally-acclaimed books, Legacy of Honor, Spirit of Adventure, and Fly Navy.
Alvin’s adventure truly began when he quit his job and sold his house to travel the country and write his first book. His pursuit of inspiration has since taken him to the halls of Congress, deep into Africa, into the skies over the Arabian Sea, through Pacific coral reefs, to Rocky Mountain peaks, into corporate board rooms, and onto five aircraft carriers in three oceans.

"Many people wonder what it is like to fly an aircraft off a ship. The thrill, the challenge...the danger, and why people take great risks and serve at sea for extended periods.

Noted author Alvin Townley, while not a naval aviator, did spend a year with naval aviation at sea and ashore, capturing the spirit of naval aviation in his superb book, Fly Navy. Mr. Townley spoke to a large audience at the Naval Aviation Museum Foundation symposium, and during his stirring remarks he did capture what naval aviation means to all of us. Completely at ease and quite engaging, this talented speaker is perfect for after dinner remarks or a motivational seminar."
