Captain Larry Brudnicki is today’s guest. Captain Brudnicki directed the dramatic rescue missions during the infamous Perfect Storm.

In his first-hand account of the events, Captain Brudnicki opens up and separates the reality from the movie version, and talks about the courage of his crew, and the deep sense of duty they felt as they braved hurricane force winds and nearly 100 foot seas for 4 straight days. He’ll tell you what was going through his mind that day... And he’ll tell you how and why he made the decisions he made.
