The 7th Fleet Commander who controls all Navy units across the vast western Pacific. Larger than life, he arrives on his flagship in a helicopter through the morning mist as if descending from Heaven. A gifted leader and superior military strategist, he is the undisputed master of all forces entrusted to him. He believes that people are the Navy’s best asset, and he demonstrates that conviction in his dealings with his staff. They both revere and fear him. Yet to the last man or woman each would take a bullet to keep him in the commander’s chair. Ethical beyond reproach, with a keen sense of mission, he has little patience for blind ambition, political posturing, self-serving cajolery or dishonesty. A military superstar, he is destined for a fourth star and higher command.
