Colonel Jeff O'Leary is a public speaker, author, news-program commentator, husband, and father of five children. He has appeared regularly on FoxNews as military analyst, specifically addressing issues of terrorism, Middle East politics, and the dynamics of regional relations in that critical part of the world. He has made appearances on more than 250 television and radio programs, including Robert Schuller's Hour of Power, the 700 Club with Pat Robertson, Janet Parshall's America, INSP Network Specials, and Moody's Mid-Day Connection. O'Leary has authored books, such as America Out of the Ashes, which made the New York Times Bestseller's List. He has penned other books that explore valorous military conduct, faith in God during battle, and critical lessons for leaders.

O'Leary served 22 years in the USAF and retired from the Pentagon in 2002, where he had an office on September 11, 2001. He's a decorated soldier honored with more than 20 different medals, including the Legion of Merit, the Southwest Asia Service Medal, and an Outstanding Unit Award.

O'Leary is the founder and director of Mission of Joy, a non-profit organization dedicated to easing the plight of homeless children in India. This enterprise supports more than 60 native missionaries in remote villages in India, has built more than 50 churches, operates a widow's home for Christian widows, and feeds thousands of meals to hungry children every week. Additionally, this organization has become deeply involved in countering the growth of child trafficking by offering girls caught in this trap a year of skill training enabling them to better support themselves.
