Military has not been represented equally in the previous conferences due to individuals fear of speaking out. This year we have made a real attempt to increase the number of military participants in this year’s conference, in both individual and panels.
Dr. Diane Corcoran >> Diane obtained her PhD in Nursing from the University of TX at Austin in 1981. At that time, she was also serving as an Officer in the U. S. Army – with a career that lasted 25 years. She heard her first NDE account from a young soldier. In 1981 a new organization was incorporated and is now known as the International Association for Near-Death Studies (IANDS). Diane has served on the Board of Directors numerous times, and this includes many years as President. She helped facilitate research conducted on the reality of events which we now know as Near-Death Experiences (NDEs). Diane now has her own consulting firm and that young soldier in Vietnam — he had told Diane about his NDE before there was a name for these type experiences

Chase De Mayo >> Chase Skylar DeMayo is a US Air Force Veteran Who Died April 1st, 2008, and sent back to spread laughter, light, love and joy with the world. After a Near-Death Experience through cardiac arrest in 2008 while stationed at Langley Air Force Base, Chase kept his Near-Death Experience private in fear of judgement and retribution for twelve years until now. Through the work Lilia Samoilo and Diane Corcoran have done to educate Veterans; Chase hopes to continue that message help heal others and allow them to Chase the Light. To keep in touch with Chase and hear more about his experiences and journey, visit ChaseSkylar.com

Scott Drummond >> After 40 years of public silence about his spiritual experience, disabled Vietnam Veteran, Scott Drummond finally decided to share his NDE from age 28. A filmmaker friend who knew Scott’s story, politely coaxed him to be filmed sharing his NDE publicly. Once uploaded to YouTube, it went viral, making him an international sensation with over 17M views. Scott experienced Heaven when pronounced dead for 20 minutes, and no longer fears dying, and wants to share his experience now to give hope and joy to people who are struggling with the fear of dying during the Covid-19 pandemic

Genny Krackau >> Genny, author of “Beyond the Explosion”, is a life resident of San Antonio, Texas. She spent the majority of her Civil Service career working in the U.S. Army Medical Department (AMEDD), Fort Sam Houston, Texas. After her retirement she worked several government contract jobs within the AMEDD. Of special interest was a research study with wounded warriors for combat related injuries. Additional research included military and burn injuries, as well as supporting a clinical trial for head injury patients, hearing conservation research for the military (Department of Defense Hearing Center of Excellence) and currently supporting a research study in Emergency Department trauma. Her sincere dedication and compassion for the patient is evident as she always puts the patient first and foremost in any job she performs. It is no surprise that by compiling these combat near-death experience stories for her book, she once again is serving the military in a very unique and special way. Genny personally relates to the near-death experiencer since she herself has had spiritual experiences. She understands the difficulty in discussing these personal experiences
