Commander, TENTH Fleet - the man

Some of the reasons why VADM McCullough was chosen by the Chief of Naval Operations to command TENTH Fleet and Fleet Cyber Command:

  • He is an intense, nuclear-trained engineer.
  • He understands the technological intricacies of cyberspace far better than his contemporaries.
  • He advised the CNO on countering the emerging ballistic-missile threat to surface ships.
  • He absolutely understands the intersection of strategy and technology.
  • He brings profound technical depth to bear on a number of crucial military questions (cyber included).
