his slides during his keynote speech at the annual Spiritual and Emotional



Care in Disasters Summit May 24, 2016, at the Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado



Springs, CO.  Parlier was the command master chief assigned to the

subjected to a terrorist attack while in port in Yemen. His emotional



presentation focused on the terrorist attack that killed 17 Sailors, the



response during and after, and lessons learned.  The annual summit is hosted
