Fleet Update from the Class of 2007

Maggiano's Italian Restaurant

Join us for our May Monthly Luncheon, 3 May 2013 at Maggianos Italian Restaurant

This month we are privileged to have two recent USNA grads from the Class of 2007 to give us the straight gouge on their recent fleet experience and how USNA prepared them for it.

Captain Andrew Nelson '07 is a Combat Engineer in the Marine Corps.  He deployed with BLT 3/2 as part the 22d Marine Expeditionary Unit in 2009, and deployed in support of Operation Unified Response, Haiti in 2010.  He then deployed with 2d Combat Engineer Battalion to Afghanistan in 2011 serving as Route Clearance Coordinator in Helmand and subsequently as the Officer in Charge of the Combat Support Advisor Team advising the Afghan Army 4/2/215 Kandak (battalion) in Kabul.  In 2012 he attended the Army Engineer Captains Career Course and is presently the NROTC Unit Marine Officer Instructor for Rice and Prairie View A&M University.

Lieutenant Matthew Guyton (USNR) '07, former SWO(N). Upon commissioning in 2007, Matt reported to the forward deployed USS STETHEM (DDG 63) stationed in Yokosuka, Japan, where he served as the Gunnery and Ordnance Officer.  He then completed Nuclear Power School in Charleston, SC in 2009 and Prototype Training at MARF in Ballston Spa, NY in 2010.  Upon completion of the pipeline, he reported to USS JOHN C. STENNIS (CVN 74) in Bremerton, WA, where he served as a Reactor Propulsion Division Officer and Propulsion Plant Watch Officer during a workup cycle (including ORSE) and a deployment to the Persian Gulf supporting Operations Enduring Freedom and New Dawn (withdrawal of troops from Iraq).  A native Houstonian (raised in Oak Ridge North), Matt now resides inside the loop, works for Bechtel as a Supplier Quality Representative, and actively drills with the Reserves as the Training and Readiness Division Officer for CDS40 Detachment Bravo.

We strongly encourage you to buy your tickets in advance using our on-line RSVP/purchase system. It gives us a much better projection of attendance, and it makes for a lot easier process at the lunch, since it relieves congestion at the sign-in table and relieves the treasurer of the need to make change. Thanks!
