There’s little or no Chris has not completed. He attended the US Naval Academy, obtained a Grasp of Science in Ocean Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Know-how (MIT) and has two Honorary PhD’s. 

As a SEAL, Chris earned a Bronze Star with Valor and a Presidential Unit Quotation for fight in Afghanistan. He was NASA’s 14th Chief Astronaut, which is the top of NASA’s Astronaut Corps and is the principal advisor to the NASA Administrator on astronaut coaching and operations.

Chris is extremely humble given his accomplishments and it’s no shock he’s now President and CEO of the Nationwide Medal of Honor Museum Basis, the place he’s main efforts to construct out an iconic Museum for MOH recipients, a Management Institute, and a Monument on the Nationwide Mall.

I hope you get pleasure from this view from Area from such a all the way down to Earth man as a lot as I did. Particular due to earlier company Darrell Utt and Mike Hayes who helped us join with Chris.
