Derek Oaks Class Of 1991
Derek Oaks is a member of the Class of 1991. Born into an Air Force family, I spent the first 48 years of my life around the Air Force mission. For me, USAFA was the only choice for college, and not a day goes by where I am not grateful for the opportunities, challenges, friendships and lessons that I received from the Academy. In the Air Force, I flew C-130s, C-17s and A-10s, and commanded at the flight, squadron and operations group levels. Since the Air Force, I’ve consulted, flown, managed projects, and looked to pass on some of the skills and leadership traits that USAFA taught me.
