Lt. Col. Steve Russell, author of “We Got Him!” will be a keynote speaker for the Republican Leadership Conference in New Orleans on Saturday, June 18 at 12:50pm CT.

“We are so pleased to have someone of Lt. Col. Russell’s stature to provide inspiration and insight for our conference,” said RLC President and CEO Charlie Davis.

Lt. Col. Russell was the commander of the battalion that played a major role in the capture of Saddam Hussein. He served 21 years in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer until his retirement in 2006. Currently, he serves as an Oklahoma State Senator.

“It will be an honor to address the conference and relate to those concerned with the vision of our nation,” said Russell.

Last month, Russell was an exclusive guest on the popular Fox News Network show, “Huckabee.” He was also a special guest on “Fox and Friends” weekend show the next morning. Russell has been on a whirlwind campaign of national media interviews, most recently on KNUS AM Radio in Colorado, with host Ross Kaminsky.

Russell is also chairman and founder of Vets4Victory, a nonpartisan organization established by combat veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Russell’s book about the hunt and capture of Saddam Hussein has received praise from the highest levels. General Raymond T. Odierno said in the foreword: “It is an honor for me to introduce this personal memoir by one of the finest battalion commanders with whom I have served. His story captures the human dimension of this awful thing we call war…”
