Bille, Bruce Allan – – Email 3/25/2012: I have been living in Warren, OH, for 20 years, after having moved 11 times in the first 10 years after graduation. I was married at the USNA Chapel in July ’82 and divorced in 2005. My three boys, now 14, 18, and 21, have re-located with their mother back to central New York but they are doing well. None have/had aspirations of attending the Boat School.
After graduation from USNA, I went Surface Line and spent 39 months on USS Conyngham (DDG 17) and then was the commissioning Anti-Air Warfare Officer on USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55). I resigned my commission in ’88. After 2 years with General Dynamics, Pomona Division as a Sr. Research Analyst in the Operations Research Department, I held several sales and sales management positions over the next 10 years.
I then found my niche as a technical recruiter, first as an Account Executive with Management Recruiters International (MRI). Though I met the qualifications for their Pacesetter program in my rookie year, I felt that I could be more effective in managing the sales and recruitment process using a different management style, and left to start my own recruiting company in 2001. Technical Staffing Professionals (http://www.techstaffingpros.com) has now been operating for 11 years, and continues to provide a valuable service and benefits to progressive companies and talented candidates. I focus mainly in the advanced energy industry, with concentrations in fuel cells, advanced battery, and algae-to-biofuel sectors.

Marcantonio, Nicholas A.—10/22/07–I’m teaching up here in Cooperstown High School, which I started last month. I’m teaching Math after finally getting my PhD in Math from Columbia. Took 7 years, but it’s nice to hear “Dr. Marc” (instead of “Uncle Nick”). My dream job would be to teach at the Naval Academy and I suppose now that I have the doctorate, I can apply for jobs there. Anyway, Colleen and the kids (Nick, 17 and Julia, 10) are still down on Long Island. Nick graduates this year and plans to go to college, he just doesn’t know where. Julia is in 5th grade and is hoping not to move to Cooperstown NY. I’ve been driving back and forth on the weekends (280.4 miles, by the way), but Cooperstown is a beautiful little town (2,034 residents). The high school is great and the kids are nice and polite. It’s like being in a Disney-town.
Miller, Kendall J. –9/21/02–Following my retirement in March, I got busy with the job search. I want to take my hat off to the organizers of the SACC; the contacts I met there netted me three good job offers! I accepted an offer to work for Northrop Grumman in Mississippi, designing the “next generation” of destroyers called DD(X). For the next 3 years, I will be working on the design of the Integrated Power System, which will include two huge electric motors for propulsion. I was selected to be one of the watch officers who drives ships for sea trials, and last week we went out on a Destroyer that Northrop Grumman overhauled for the Venezuelan Navy — we drove around, tracking contacts and shooting the guns. Can’t get enough of that sea time! I’ll be going to some more refresher schools for that and may begin work toward a First Mate or Master Coast Guard License. Jean and I are doing well here in Mississippi, and God continues to bless us. . . We signed a contract on a nice home . . . We got Mississippi licenses and car tags (mine says “Armed Forces, Retired”) . . . We joined a church where we’ll be leading financial seminars. . . all the usual things one does when changing duty stations. Hope all goes well at the big party. Give them my regards.

Silvius, David G. – – 8/12/05 moved from San Jose, CA to Dublin, OH in late March 2005 to fulfill a promise made to my wife Julie many years ago (she is from Springfield OH and wanted to be close to her family for a change). Kept my job at Agilent Technologies – since my boss is in Asia and all I do is travel around the US, he didn’t care where I lived.
We really enjoy our new church in Dublin, Discover Christian Church, a non-denominational church affiliated with the Church of Christ.
Adopted our daughter Katie from China when she was 7 months old. Now she is 8 and a big 3rd grader. A truly sweet girl and an incredible blessing.
Retired Dec 04, CDR, USNR. Active duty on subs 82-90, including a 2 year stint teaching at Basic Sub school (SOBC) which was a blast.
