Michael Pugh Class Of 1995

Biography

After graduating with the Class of 1995, I served as an aircraft maintenance officer at Fairchild AFB and Travis AFB. These assignments sent me around the world on several deployments. While stationed in Spokane, Washington, I met my wife of 15 years and we have two very active boys who are 11 and 12 years old. I separated from the USAF in October 2000 and worked initially in telecommunications and then as general manager for Inflow Inc. in Minneapolis. For 12+ years, I have been a clinical sales representative for Medtronic Spine in Minneapolis, working with surgeons to help patients suffering from spinal deformities.

Candidacy Statement
USAFA has been a cornerstone in my life since 1983 when my dad took an assignment in the Athletic Department as a baseball coach. As I look back now, the Academy has played an important role in my development as a child, cadet and more recently as an alumnus. I am excited for the opportunity to serve on the AOG Board of Directors and represent fellow alumni and again be part of something much larger than myself. The Academy is a very special place, and I hope to play a role in it continuing to be that for others.
