Mr. Henry, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Marines, served on the staff of two Secretaries of Defense and served on the staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on Armed Services. He is a former Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower and Reserve Affairs.

Dr. Timboe, a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy is a family physician and combat medical leader.
