Hello all. I am a former US Navy F-14 naval flight officer who retired this year after 25 years of active duty and reserve service. The last 10 years I have been in the Washington DC area, working as a project and program manager and action officer for various US Navy programs. Currently, I work for the Navy's Space and Naval Warfare Systems command on issues related to modeling and simulation. I have a BA and a B.Ed in education and an MA in National Security and Strategic Studies from the US Naval War College. Looking forward to engaging in discussions on some of the issues of the day.
