Commander Cannad 1 if x f if 4 1' I 4' f ' if 9 If 5 . fi Wx The Executive Olliccr of the VUNROTC unit is CDR Skip Cannady. The eighteen year flight oflicer comes here after a very in- teresting career. After graduating from the Naval Academy in 1967, he went to NAS Pensacola, Fla. to earn his wings. After re- ceiving his wings, CDR Cannady spent three years in a VP squadron. From there he be- came a Navigation instructor at the Naval Academy for three years. From there CDR Cannady completed another three year tour, this time in Sicily, Italy at the ASW Op- erations Center. Next, CDR Cannady at- te11ded Naval Postgraduate School in Monter- rey, California where he received his Masters degree in Oceanography. Finally, before com- ing to Vanderbilt, CDR Cannady went to the VP-19 squadron for two years. Here at Van- derbilt, he is 2fC advisor, instructor of Navi- gation and Naval Operations, and the advisor for the unit softball team. ,rm So far CDR Cannady has enjoyed his tour at Vanderbilt. He enjoys attending the Van- derbilt athletic events, and has become a true Commodore fan. He says he receives personal satisfaction from seeing the midshipmen ma- ture and states that they need to accept ac- countability for their actions. H 1 3 1.

O1 Colonel Phillips As Commanding Officer of VUNROTC, Colonel R.A. Phillips, Jr., USMC, has been directly responsible for the smooth and effi- cient operation of the unit. COL Phillips's billet at Vanderbilt has been the latest in his career with the Marine Corps, during which he has served in many stall' and field positions. His staff experience includes such distinctions as staff officer for Commander-In-Chief Pa- cific, and Aide to Deputy Chief-of-Staff. COL Phillips's field experience also includes sev- eral billets, most recently CO of Camp Fuji, Japan, and advisor to a Vietnamese Army battalion and division. l t , A 'C A X' A is 5 4 ET in 'ini COL Phillips demands high standards of the unit staff and battalion performance, in grades, military aptitude, and physical fitness. COL Phillips feels that meeting these standards has helped maintain a quality NROTC program at Vanderbilt. He points to the fact that VUNROTC has had a very high selection rate for nuclear power training school candidates and that nearly all VUN- ROTC graduates have received their prefer- ence of duty. COL Phillips has been proud to-be CO of VUNROTC, but will retire from military service on Sept. 1, 1985, after 30 years. COL Phillips intends to work in the civilian sector, possibly for Vanderbilt Uni- versity. MIDN. 2fC Mark Eastin.
