Candidacy Statement
It is with great pride that I submit my candidacy as a member of the Board of Directors for the AOG. Since my graduation from USAFA in 1993, I have dedicated myself to a career of service in the military and federal government. My experiences were made possible by my parents, and the promise of the American Dream when they immigrated to our nation in the 1960s. Our cadets continue to bring that same spirit of service and measure of devotion to our nation. I would be honored to support our cadets and our graduates as a member of the board.
