Brian was a great officer when I worked with him at NSWU-8 in the late 90s. I would serve with him again without reservation.

One of the Officers that I did a Platoon with at Team One was an Air Force Academy grad. When I was doing the NSW Recruiting job, I helped two Officers lateral over from other branches. It happens fairly often.
