When Terry Geiling took his first assignment as a young man aboard a submarine in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, he knew he was about to embark on a mission of courage, duty and honor. His mission, forever grounded in his dedication to duty, continues to this day as a visionary business and community leader, philanthropist, family man, proud veteran, and entrepreneur. One of Terry’s most important missions began when he took the post of President and CEO of the American Gold Star Manor, a senior retirement facility for mothers who have lost children in the line of duty and for U.S. veterans. He is also a founding board member of the Jonas Project, which helps turn veteran-entrepreneurs into high-impact business leaders. Terry is a past president of the Rotary Club of Long Beach. He is on the local Boards of Saint Mary Medical Center and is Vice President of the Foundation that raised all the funds required to bring a much needed Fisher House to the grounds of the Long Beach VA hospital.
