The ceremony was presided over by Mrs. Joanne S.

Other VIPs present included Mr. Larry Muzello, Deputy to the Commanding General for the U.S. Army Communications and Electronics Command, and Mr. James Amato, Director of the U.S. Army Materiel Systems Analysis Activity.

Over the course of the 10-month program, Ben and the other SSCF fellows participated in a variety of leadership, national security strategy and acquisition programs, conducted industry and governmental organization visits, and met with a variety of senior leaders including general officers, SES members and political appointees. Ben returns to MC4 on 5 July where he is being considered for additional acquisition opportunities at Fort Detrick, MD.
