Dan has had an aviation career spanning three decades with world-wide operational experience in both the civilian and military fields including every facet of operations from Intelligence, Surveillance & Reconnaissance (ISR) to long range power projection and humanitarian relief.

The creation of this full spectrum training system includes ground, simulator, and in-flight training of Allied/Coalition flight crew from basic initial qualification to final instructor/evaluator qualification to include all intergovernmental approvals and tasks associated with the deployment of local support teams (LST) to the client nations to ensure achievement and sustainment of desired mission capabilities.

Dan started his career with the Strategic Air Command in the 1980's and is a decorated combat veteran with 10 major operational deployments and has served with every major Combatant Command both Global and Regional. He was handpicked by a Combatant Commander to lead the western region of a White House directed rebuild of the National Military Communication System (NMCS). He is a veteran commander of several operations groups across the globe that included Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance (ISR), Long Range Strike/Interdiction & Close Air Support (CAS) as well as Air Refueling/Mobility operations.

Interesting phenomenon we at replica watches have been replica watches that should be of particular interest for anyone keen to get a popular sport replica watches from certain brands in the the next several years. replica watches sale know how much this emotion can galvanize watch collector purchase behavior. This means brands typically restrict all the replica watches sale they make, just some of them in order to replica watches collector interest and zeal. We try to sell to local customers, but this is really hard to police. My recommendation is to establish rolex replica sale with your authorized Rolex Dealer and he will be able to get you your special Rolex watch. Be patient and persistent. There is a considerable difference between the Rolesor and the replica watches versions both in terms of looks, style, and price. A fan of two replica watches anyway but prefer I the yellow gold rolesor to this rose gold mix.
