It is with great honor that we announce Staff Sgt. (RET.) Shilo Harris as the keynote speaker for HLAA2017. Shilo served in Iraq in 2007 when the Humvee he and three fellow soldiers were in were hit by a roadside bomb. Shilo sustained devastating injuries and a long road to recovery. Today, he is an inspirational speaker and author of Steel Will: My Journey Through Hell to Become the Man I Was Meant to Be. A book signing will be scheduled at HLAA2017 as well.
