USS CURTS Hosts Retired Admirals
By USS CURTS Public Affairs
The USS CURTS was honored to host three retired United States Navy Admirals for a lunch and tour. The guests included Rear Admiral (retired) James Marshall, Rear Admiral (retired) Mark Balmert, and Rear Admiral (retired) Michael Frick, a former Commanding Officer of USS CURTS. All three retired admirals now hold influential executive positions at firms which supply military technology to the United States Navy’s ships and sailors. 

The purpose of the visit was to re-acquaint the former admirals with the daily operations of today’s Navy. The guided tour of the USS CURTS provided an in-depth look at the needs of sailors aboard a United States Navy Warship. The former admirals were able to observe sailors at work and speak with USS CURTS’ subject matter experts in Engineering, Combat, Operations, and Administration Department. The tour also included a working luncheon with members of the USS CURTS wardroom. 

The conversation between USS CURTS officers and guests further developed the understanding of the challenges faced by United States Navy leadership aboard fighting ships. The renewed connection to the deckplates of the United States Navy Warships will undoubtedly result in even greater cohesion between the United States Navy and those SWO veteran’s who now hold influential positions in industry.
