Personal Statement:

I was raised in south Boston, but left there in 1976 to join the Air Force and see the world. After graduating from the Air Force Academy, I served as an intercontinental ballistic missile launch officer during the height of the Cold War, then taught political science and military law at St. Michael's College as an Air Force ROTC instructor. I then elected to go into the reserves as an intelligence officer while attending law school in San Francisco. I became a deputy district attorney in San Bernardino, California, after law school, but later decided to go back into the active duty Air Force as a judge advocate (JAG) and went to Ramstein Air Base, Germany.

Over the next 14 years as a JAG, I served as a prosecutor as well as a defense attorney, ultimately litigating 35 trials for offenses up to premeditated murder. I served as a military attorney not only in Germany, but across the U.S., Saudi Arabia, Korea and Bosnia. In Bosnia, I served as part of NATO’s SFOR (Stabilization Force) and as a member of the U.S. Joint Interagency Task Force with the mission to monitor terrorism in the Balkans and apprehend war criminals. I was in Saudi Arabia in 1996 immediately after the terrorist attack on U.S. Air Force personnel at the Khobar Towers in Dhahran and provided operational law guidance for our response to that attack. I returned to the Air Force Academy as an associate professor of law and, later, as a senior legal advisor to the superintendent. I retired from the Air Force in 2004 and settled in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I served as commander of the VFW Post 7829 in Monument, Colorado, for four years, then the Colorado VFW State Judge Advocate, and served as the National VFW Judge Advocate General (2016-2017).

I have taught law, terrorism and political science classes for 28 years now, both online and in traditional face-to-face classroom settings.
