Chief of Naval Operations Delivers All Hands Message at Naval Postgraduate School.
Vice Chief of Naval Operations (VCNO) Adm. Mark Ferguson addressed NPS students, faculty and staff during an all-hands call on the university campus, April 25, 2013. During the visit, Ferguson, a graduate of NPS’ computer science program, took part in the semi-annual meeting of the university’s Board of Advisors subcommittee, and shared his vision for the Navy with members of the NPS community. Detailing his own experiences while studying at NPS, Ferguson shared with students the relevance graduate education has had on his military career. “When I came here, it was my first exposure to officers from foreign countries,” said Ferguson. “It was my first exposure to officers from other services, and with solving complex technical problems. It exposed me to the most advanced research and innovative thinking in industry, as well as within the Department of Defense.”
