Mike Martin - AC

Post by b52murph »

Does anybody remember a counselor or manager @ AC named Mike Martin? I came across his name in an old brochure...which brought back memories. In 1990, he had just left the USN (LCDR maybe?) and been hired on to start AC. He was our lead flight instructor that June and taught us ACM.

Is he still there now?

Not that I know of. I haven't heard the name in the last 4 years, but I could be wrong. Usually the counselors just go over ACM briefly.

No, Martin isn't there anymore. Not sure when he left, but he was one of the first managers of the AC program. When I interviewed in 1995, he was not there. At that time, Ralph Bryson was the Program Manager and Steve Austin was the Assistant Program Manager.
