VADM Jan E. Tighe


Perhaps a more important Naval figure than RADM Grace Hopper.  

Only time will tell.

No doubt about that.

A bit of trivia - Note that VADM Tighe wears NAO wings earned while serving as a COMEVAL with VQ-1. VADM Tighe is the most senior of any officer that ever flew with VQ -- several of the 1310/1320/1610 guys made it to RADM, but to the best of my knowledge none made it past that. A silent salute to VADM Tighe from a former VQ-1 COMEVAL. BZ!

Not sure I would compare VADM Tighe to Grace Hopper. The latter had a far more lasting impact to the Navy while the former has achieved much as an individual. Ultimately VADM Tighe's impact to the larger Service is yet to be seen and I would posit that upon retirement there will be great individual success, but nominal Navy impact.

I just had a meeting with her and the CNO. She asked the right questions.
