I am a Surface Warfare Officer primarily, but also a political military subspecialist. The latter indicates that when l am not at sea, l am normally assigned to billets requiring some skill and experience in strategic planning, pol-mil affairs, or international relations. Most of my naval career has been spent in thinking about and training for a war at sea against the Soviet Navy. Shipboard exercises during department head, executive officer, commanding officer, and squadron commander tours were designed and carried out to ensure that the combatants to which I was assigned were prepared to defeat Soviet nuclear submarines, supersonic aircraft, and well-armed surface ships.
