Add to that, he was still an O-6 and the Commandant at the Academy back in 2006. O-6 to O-8 in less then three years.

If that’s not hot running, I don’t know what is. And it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. I had the pleasure of dealing with him on numerous occassions in Squadron Six, and he was a solid, personable, inspiring leader.

Good to see the right guys finish first. Gives you some faith in the system.

Congrats, Admiral!!

    I grew up with Rear Adm. Bruce Grooms we were Co-MVP’s on our High School basketball team. I went to college and became a business man and he has taken the leadership skills he demonstrated on the court and in the class room to another level. He is a fair and humble leader of men and I am proud to still call him “My Friend” here 40 years latter!
