Admiral Patrick Walsh will join us for a virtual Sips & Science sponsored by Bank of Texas.
A one-time member of the Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, the "Blue Angels," he flew combat missions in support of Operation Desert Storm and Provide Comfort and commanded numerous squadrons throughout his distinguished Naval career, including the Gunslingers of Strike-Fighter Squadron 105, Carrier Air Wing 1, and Carrier Group Seven of the John C. Stennis Strike Group. In 1988, Admiral Walsh was appointed a prestigious White House Fellow by President Ronald Reagan and later was selected as Chairman of the Leadership, Ethics, and Law Departments at the U.S. Naval Academy.
Beginning in 2007, Admiral Walsh served as the 35th Vice Chief of Naval Operations as well as Commander of the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command. In 2009, he began a three-year tenure as 59th Commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet. With responsibility for an area that encompasses half of the Earth's surface and is home to half of the world's population, he was in command of five aircraft strike carrier groups, 180 ships, 1,500 aircraft, and more than 100,000 sailors.
Admiral Walsh graduated with honors from Jesuit College Preparatory in Dallas and received both the Distinguished Graduate and Distinguished Alumnus awards. He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science. He attended graduate studies in the International Relations curriculum at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, as part of the Adm. Arthur S. Moreau Scholarship Program. Walsh graduated first in his class and received a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy, entered the Doctorate Program with distinction and subsequently received a Ph.D.
