JAMESTOWN – The Robert H. Jackson Center will interview retired US Army Platoon Sergeant Eric Bourquin on Tuesday Nov. 6.
Sgt. Bourquin completed three combat tours, one in Afghanistan and two in Iraq. On April 4, 2004, his platoon was ambushed in Sadr City, Iraq. The battle came to be known as “Black Sunday.”
Jackson Center co-founder Gregory Peterson will interview Sgt. Bourquin at 6:00 pm in the Cappa Theatre of the Jackson Center to share his expertise in leadership by delivering thoughtful and tested theories learned and developed over his military career.
Sgt. Bourquin believes, “My experiences on the battlefield have taught me valuable lessons in leadership and my experiences and struggles in readjusting to civilian life continue to teach me lessons in the importance of leaning on the strength of others to build and share your own struggles.”
This event is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Robert H. Jackson Center, 305 East 4 th Street, Jamestown, NY.
