Capt. Milton Troy III (MBA ’02) buoys support-related training as a commanding officer in the U.S. Navy

At age 15, Milton Troy III got a taste of his future. It happened under the hood of his first car, a gift from his dad — a $100 Mercury Bobcat, white with a baby-blue interior.

“It was the ugliest car I ever saw,” Troy remembers. “It had a hole in the floor, and the door never closed right. It wouldn’t go 20 miles without overheating, so I always had to carry water and anti-freeze. Once on a date, I had to stop a couple of times driving to the movie theater.”

Troy’s father wisely understood that a needy Bobcat would give his son some basic training in planning and preparation.

The lesson served Troy well.

Today, he’s in charge of all support-related training for the U.S. Navy.
