Commander Todd Moore ‘95, USN, relieved Captain George Perez Jr., USN,  during a pier-side ceremony aboard USS New Mexico, which completed its maiden deployment in August. USS New Mexico is the second Navy vessel to bear the name of the 47th state. The first ship was an accomplished battleship that won six battle stars for service during World War II. During the ceremony Moore remarked, "I couldn’t have imagined a better turnover or a better place to be than right here, right now. It is with a great spirit of gratitude that I take command of USS New Mexico... Tomorrow we return to the task of breathing life into this new warship, preparing it and ourselves to be part of that global force and preparing to defend our land."

 

Moore previously served on the staff of U.S Strategic Command. During his time at Hamilton, Moore majored in Physics and Classical Studies. Moore went on to receive his graduate degree from the U.S. Naval War College.

Comments

Congrats to Moore, but where's the picture of his new command?

(and what does SSN 779 mean?)
