Mr. Combat Pilot Non-Profit Leader

About Me:

Howdy! I’m a USAF instructor pilot currently serving as aide-de-camp to a 3-star general overseas. I was previously commander of 64 personnel. I am a published author in academic journals, lead various non-profits, a keynote speaker as well as part of CSIS & other fellowships. I was awarded the Secretary of the Air Force Leadership Award as a #1 graduate of 3,803 of my peers in Squadron Officer School.

I would love to chat with Mr. John Byrne sometime for advice. I took the GRE without any studying on a whim, so I may look at taking it again. Also, I have two and a half years left in the armed forces on active duty–if I choose to leave to apply for an MBA and law school programs. My age in this reflects the age I would be at application in 2023.
