Thursday, April 21st: The Inadvertent Captain View from the Bridge, the Studio and the Gaming Floor
Presented by Tom Culora
Thomas Culora, regional artist, retired US Navy Captain and current Dean at the US Naval War College's Center for Naval Warfare Studies talks about his journey before, during and after his command of USS BOXER (LHD-4) and in his current role as a leader, researcher and artist.
Tom will share his insight into being a Captain of an amphibious assault aircraft carrier, one of the US Navy's capital ships, as well as relate to us stories about the dedication, intense training, operations and the opportunities he and his sailors experienced while on board USS BOXER. He will also provide the unique perspective of the interplay between large naval vessels and recreational sailboat/cruisers and what it's like to go from commanding a 844' vessel to piloting a 40' sailboat. He will also provide a snapshot of missions of the Naval War College.
