He's our senior industry executive. For a retired Air Force colonel, he knows how the defense industry works. He holds an MBA from one of those expensive schools, though we don't hold it against him.
He thinks he knows more than anyone else even though he's never been in uniform and can't get enough of JAG reruns. He holds a PhD and is a resident scholar at a Washington area think tank. He writes articles and essays like they're going out of style. And speaking of style, his ties never match his suits.
