How often does this happen? The new NSWC commander and the NSWC deputy commander who both graduated from the USAFA??

Can't speak to the flag grade officers, but there are actually several USAFA grads that went on to be SEALs. Two that I can think of are Nick (?) Walsh, a Vietnam-era SEAL, and Job Price, ST-4 skipper (USAFA class of '93). Great guy who I am sure is sorely missed.

Don't come by here much. VADM Pybus was my CO at Unit 2. Glad to see he's been promoted. I'm guessing Patty is glad to be going back to Europe.

I know another USAFA grad who is a Team guy, went through BUD/S with a USMA grad and went to freefall school with a USNA grad who was finishing up the CRO pipeline. Its not uncommon.

Wow! Really! The first true SEAL Admiral was "Irish Flynn" and he was selected in the mid '80's. NSW traces their birth to around 1942. And MARSOC is how old?

I saw Adm. Maguire name on another thread. Couldn't find that one. So now he is the highest retired SEAL as a political appointee?

https://www.whitehouse.gov/president...tion-posts-49/

Joseph Maguire of Florida, to be Director of the National Counterterrorism Center, Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

Mr. Joseph Maguire has served as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Special Operations Warrior Foundation since September 2013, after serving three years on the Foundation’s Board of Directors. As a career Naval Special Warfare Officer, he retired from the United States Navy in 2010 as a Vice Admiral after thirty-six years in uniform. He commanded at every level in the Naval Special Warfare Command, which is the Navy Component of United States Special Operations Command. His last assignment in Government was as the National Counterterrorism Center’s Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning, during which he served as a member of the National Security Council’s Counterterrorism Security Group. A native of New York City, Mr. Maguire was awarded a B.S. from Manhattan College and a MSTI from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. He also was a National Security Fellow at Harvard University. He and his wife Kathy currently reside in Tampa, Florida.

I'm not so sure about that. My XO at SBU12 became a DDCIA. Not sure if that was a direct political appointment or not. Bert was the best manager I ever had in the Navy and still ranks as one of my best ever after 20+ years in civilian life. He opened his door to me and asked me what I needed to get my job done. He followed through. Rare, so I guess I'll always be a fanboi.

From Wikipedia:
Calland graduated from the United States Naval Academy with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1974 and subsequently graduated from Basic Underwater Demolition/SEAL Training (BUD/S) class 82 in 1975. Calland served as a Platoon Commander of a SEAL Delivery Vehicle (SDV) platoon and a SEAL Platoon, Instructor BUD/S Training and Naval Special Warfare/Explosive Ordnance Disposal Officer. In Fall 1980, Calland was selected by CDR Richard Marcinko as a founding member of SEAL Team SIX and served till 1982. Calland was executive Officer of Special Boat Unit 12 in 1987 and deployed as part of Operation Earnest Will in the Persian Gulf. Calland took command of SEAL Team ONE from November 1992 until January 1995. He later went on to receive a Master of Science degree in national resource strategy from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces in 1996. From June 1997 until June 1999, Calland commanded the Naval Special Warfare Development Group.[1] Calland was the commanding officer of Special Operations Command Central (SOCCENT), part of United States Central Command, and as such, commanded efforts in Afghanistan in 2001 during Operation Enduring Freedom.[2] Between August 2002 and March 2004, Calland served as the commanding officer of the Naval Special Warfare Command. Calland's career at the Central Intelligence Agency began with his appointment to the position of Associate Director of Central Intelligence for Military Support in March 2004, a position he filled until his appointment as Deputy Director. Calland resigned from that position upon the confirmation of CIA Director General Michael Hayden, as a 1953 amendment to the National Security Act of 1947 prevents the Director and Deputy Director from serving in the military simultaneously.

After leaving the CIA, Calland served for a year as Deputy Director for Strategic Operational Planning at the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). He retired from the Navy on July 1, 2007 after 33 years of service becoming Executive Vice President for Security and Intelligence Integration with CACI International Inc.[3]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_M._Calland_III

Either way, both are very accomplished men.

I think Ryan Zinke holds that title.
