“It’s really quite an honor for me to receive this award today and this opportunity to support the Naval Postgraduate School,” said Parker, who visited NPS to explore possible areas of collaboration. “A lot of great memories come to mind being back here, and it’s really quite a great experience to reconnect and be a part of the future of NPS.”

In his current role with the Air Force, Parker provides policy, guidance and oversight for the development of plans, and the design of future systems, to ensure availability of personnel services for the Air Force warfighter. Additionally, Parker has served within the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Financial Management and Comptroller) as the Director of the Financial Systems Division, as well as Branch Chief, Future Plans and Integration Branch, Manpower and Reserve Affairs, Headquarters, U.S. Marine Corps.
