Candidacy Statement
My USAFA experience provided the foundation for what later became a 32-year Air Force career. I want to use my leadership and experience to help ensure that, as alumni, we help USAF maintain the highest levels of leadership and character development, academic standards and athletic achievement. As alumni, we have extraordinary skills and resources that, if coordinated, will assist the Academy to achieve these goals. In the same manner, our alumni network is able to assist USAFA graduates during their career or in their civilian transition. I will use my energy to best serve USAFA and the AOG.
