Congratulations on chairing an outstanding Service Academies Global Summit this year in Washington, DC. The Agenda was timely and relevant and the speakers were incomparable. From Secretary McDonald  (USMA’75), to Administrator Bolden (USNA’68), to General Wolfenbarger (USAFA’80) and Admiral (Michel USCGA’85), the speakers brought their unique perspectives and wowed the participants with their personal stories and lessons learned in very distinguished careers. The feedback I received from participants was both glowing and appreciative for having had the opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow service academy graduates who are engaged and clearly ‘making things happen.’ This was a first class event and I am positive it will become an institution amount our distinctive and exceptional group.
