WHO ARE WE?

Who We Are

Ric holds a Graduate Degree in Criminal Justice and retired in 2005 after serving 23+ years in the United States Air Force. His military career focused on leading, directing, and protecting in various capacities. It was his honor to serve as First Sergeant of 8 squadrons, and this experience led to his appointment as AWACS Command Chief. It was Ric’s responsibility as the two-star General’s Chief Advisor to advise on how to serve and protect the 3100 soldiers under their charge. He assessed factors that influenced combat readiness, force protection, and prepared troops for wartime scenarios and defensive fighting positions to safeguard a forward operating base.
