The Birthplace of NNOA
I have the honor of serving as the Chapter President for the Birthplace of NNOA. I’m calling for a JOINT effort to breathe life into the Annapolis Chapter. I hope our efforts will honor the legacy of those who preceded us, accomplish the mission before us, and establish a foundation for future Naval Officers. Success looks like an established network of Naval Officers across ALL ranks working towards achieving, developing, and retaining a diverse officer corps. Let’s get to work.
