    He was a pilot at the Navy Fighter Weapons School, or more colloquially known as Top Gun.

    I like this.

    Actually, he is a naval flight officer, served as a radar intercept officer or better known as a RIO. In the movie Top Gun, that was Goose.

    He spoke at USCGA this year as the closing keynote speaker for our Ethics Forum. Great speaker that had a way of captivating the audience (which can be extremely difficult given a cadet's ability to sleep anywhere). Sounds like an awesome choice for Superintendent considering he is coming off a tour at the Naval War College.
