Retired Navy vice admiral Walter J. Davis replaces retired Army general Johnnie Wilson as national chair of the BEYA Military Alumni Committee. In this position, VADM Davis will manage all BEYA military services and have oversight of the Stars and Stripes program/events and all veteran activities.

A founding member of the BEYA Stars and Stripes, VADM Davis has made numerous contributions to the 10-year program such as BEYA Stars and Stripes Mentoring. The annual event, which features flag and general officers as well as members of the federal executive service, connects groups of young people at the BEYA conference with opportunities to learn about leadership, science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers, and the rewards of military service.

During his Naval career, Davis served as a fighter pilot, aircraft carrier commanding officer, and battle group commander. He was navy engineer for the F-14 and Naval Warfare IT Architect. He later served as the director of space, Information Warfare, command and control systems, and modeling and simulation where he directed the Navy’s information technology budget before moving on to become deputy chief of naval operations until his retirement from the public sector.

“Vice Admiral Davis is a longtime friend of Career Communications Group (CCG), a passionate believer in the CCG mission to get more youth into STEM, and a great supporter of our veterans,” said CEO of Career Communications Group, Inc. Dr. Tyrone Taborn. “There is no doubt that VADM Davis will be an outstanding National Military Alumni Chairman.”
