"It's incredible to know that I was able take what I learned at the academy and use what I'm learning in the classroom to impact real decisions within the Navy"
"One of the things we're trying to do here is educate folks who may not normally work with the Navy about what our problem sets are and to get folks who don't think like we do to help us solve them."
