Testimonials

 12/ 18/2017 

“Karolyn Smith is a hero. She is also an engaging speaker that shows us all what compassion and cheerful optimism is, even though she has every reason not to be.

Her story, and the way she tells it, is a one of a kind experience.

It is rare to hear from an American soldier who has endured so much. The fact that this soldier is a woman, and the only woman to ever to hold her position, keeps listeners on the edge of their seat.
But it’s what she has done since she returned home that allows us to see into her heart.

I had a lump in my throat during most of her speech and tears of joy towards the end.

Karolyn Smith is a great speaker in a time in our history when we need to hear from someone exactly like her.

I can’t wait to hear her speak again.
