About the Author:
William Korach has held senior executive positions with Citibank, New England Life, and KPMG Consulting where he was responsible for implementing marketing technologies to better serve customers and management. Korach was an early developer of on-line banking at Citibank and has taught and written about marketing technology through out his career in financial services. Korach is a former Commander in the United States Naval Reserve who served on Active Duty during the 1960's aboard the destroyer USS John R. Pierce and was recalled to active duty for Operation Desert Storm. At the close of Desert Storm, Korach wrote a paper for the Assistant Secretary of Defense on media coverage that was presented at the Harvard University Kennedy School of Government.
Korach worked closely on the founding of the USS Intrepid Air and Space Museum in New York, and play a key role in New York's Annual Fleet Week.
He is currently president of the Navy League of the United States, St Augustine Council, and has written articles for Sea Power Magazine on National Security. Korach has studied and reported on the budget inadequacies of the Navy, Marines and Coast Guard given the expanded mission and threat from Islamic radicalism, and conventional threats from N. Korea, China, Iran, and Venezuela.
Korach recently completed a history textbook Rock of the Republic because of his concern that America’s great heritage is no longer being taught in America’s schools. Mr. Korach, a former Commander in the United States Naval Reserve says: “I share the concern of David McCullough Pulitzer Prize winning author of 1776 and John Adams that our children’s ignorance of American history is a threat to national security.”
The curriculum grew out of the belief that young people were largely unaware of the Judeo-Christian foundation upon which their country was built. Great legal minds like William Blackstone and sociologist Alexis de Tocqueville that contributed so much to American law and ethics are no longer being studied. Mr. Korach says: “I uncovered a treasure trove of speeches, documents and letters by the Founders, Framers, and more recent leaders that provide powerful insight into our Constitution.”
Korach graduated from the University of Chicago Laboratory School and received his BA in history from the University of Wisconsin.
