My previous assignments included getting my MS in Engineering Mechanics at Columbia University (1987), flying the Northrop T-38 Talon as an instructor (1988-1992), and flying the Lockheed C-5 Galaxy as an instructor/ evaluator (1992-1995). I fondly remember the numerous friends and experiences from my summer in Washington DC and have definitely benefitted from the WISE program!!

I hope to talk to him soon to see how his summer went. (Posted: 8/98)
