The Right Stuff
In his nearly 28 years in the military, Bruce flew many missions and many different aircraft, most notably the F-4E Phantom and F-15E Strike Eagle. And as a weapons officer, it was a job that demanded concentration and precision, as well as teamwork and strategic planning to enusre the successful outcome of every mission. But aiming higher at everything he does has always been Bruce's style - whether it's several hundred miles an hour in the air or with his feet planted firmly on the ground.
Throughout his Air Force career, Bruce has always been someone people could rely on. That's why during the Olympics in Seoul, Korea in 1988, Bruce was chosen as one of the few aviators to patrol the skies above the city - discouraging any potential threats. It was an honor he accepted and carried out the same way he does everything in his life, with the highest standards of professionalism and dedication.
Where most people would slow down considerably after their retirement from the fast pace of military life, the thought has never entered Bruce's mind. He turned his full attention to beginning a new career in Real Estate in 2003 and has been just as laser-focused on success there as in his Air Force career. That said, he still makes ample time for his family and their favorite activities of deep sea fishing and camping several times a year.
