Hi. I'm Jon Hovde. I'm happy you're here. My purpose as a person, husband, father, grandfather, keynote speaker, author and Vietnam veteran is to "Make a Difference."
When I made that vow in 1968, I was laying on my deathbed in a hospital in Vietnam. At the time, I wasn’t sure what it would mean. But I now know my life has a purpose and that is what I want to share with others.
For the past several years, I've traveled this great country of ours, visiting with people about my experiences. I especially enjoy the opportunity to connect with students, and if you read some of the letters they've sent me, I think you’ll agree that my message has a profound impact on them.
I hope I can visit with you and your group in the future. In the meantime, please take a look around my website to learn more about my story and my purpose. If I can answer any questions, please feel free to contact me.
