Candidacy Statement
I am volunteering to serve on the Association of Graduates Board of Directors so that I can give back to the institution a small fraction of what the Academy gave me, a fascinating 35-plus-year career serving our nation. I believe that, as a member of this board, I can significantly contribute to their mission of supporting the Academy, cadets and graduates; specifically I believe my unique perspectives of working for more than 35 years with my Navy peers can help improve our service academy standing in Washington, D.C., and build upon the progress of the AOG and Endowment over the past years, including increasingly close cooperation between the AOG and Endowment leadership.
