Candidacy Statement
I have been a strong, life long advocate of the Academy. My priority is to make sure the AOG provides world-class support to cadets and graduates. I served a 26-year Air Force career, which included an Academy tour as AOC/Group AOC/94th ATS commander from 1983-87. My second career was with Lockheed Martin in C-130J Business Development from 1997-2016. We have two sons (Matt '95 and Patrick '01) and a daughter-in-law (Kendra Marks Lowe '01) who are USAFA graduates. I would be honored to serve on the AOG Board of Directors.
