Event Description:
Please join us for the Greater Ocean City Chamber of Commerce's Annual Mayor's Prayer Breakfast, featuring guest speaker Brian Shul! 

The Mayor's Prayer Breakfast has become one of Ocean City's favorite traditions, bringing our community together for a few hours to share in an inspiring and uplifting event and delicious breakfast! Breakfast includes buffet provided by Centerplate, and included in cost of  ticket.
We will be welcoming veteran fighter pilot, author and photographer Brian Shul:
    "Born in Quantico, VA in 1948, Brian graduated East Carolina University in 1970 with a degree in History and Anthropology.    After 20 years as an Air Force fighter pilot, Brian Shul today is an accomplished author, speaker, and photographer.
     Flying close air support missions in Viet Nam, he flew 212 missions before his aircraft was shot down.  Severely burned in the crash he was given little chance of survival.  He spent one year in hospitals, endured 15 reconstructive surgeries and after countless hours of physical therapy, Brian surprised his doctors and returned to flying jets.
    He flew the A-7D, and was in the very first A-10 squadron, becoming an airshow demonstration pilot.  Brian also taught at the Air Force’s TOPGUN School and culminated his Air Force career with selection to fly the world’s premier spy plane, the SR-71.  This was a remarkable accomplishment considering that it required an astronaut physical to qualify for the plane that routinely flew above 95% of the earth’s atmosphere.  Only 89 Air Force pilots in history ever flew the SR-71, still the fastest plane ever built.  Brian flew the Blackbird for 4 years and was the pilot who provided key photos of Libyan terrorist camps to President Reagan during the Libyan Crisis in 1986 when he became the only SR-71 pilot ever to fly 3 missions in 3 consecutive days.
     Brian retired from the Air Force in 1990, and pursued his writing and photography interests. He was the first SR-71 pilot ever to write a book about flying that plane, illustrated with his own photography.  It earned him the Aviation Book of the Year honors from the Smithsonian.  He has written three other aviation books, for which he did all the flying, writing, and photography.  He is the only man in America to have flown extensively with both the Air Force Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels in the making of those books.  His book on the SR-71 is today the single most popular book on that plane worldwide.
    Brian’s remarkable comeback story has inspired audiences nationwide as today he has become one of America’s most popular keynote speakers.  He is a recipient of the National Spirit of Freedom Award, the prestigious Silver Eagle Award, and recently was inducted into the Air Force Legends Hall of Fame.
   Brian is the owner of Gallery One in Marysville, California where his nationally acclaimed nature photography is on display."
