Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) April 26, 2013
After a 24-year career in the U.S. Air Force and more than 19 years of service as Director of Government Relations for Military Officers Association of America (MOAA), retired, Air Force Col. Steve Strobridge will retire at the end of April. Strobridge has worked tirelessly for the men and women of the military, their families, veterans and their survivors.
A native of Vermont, Strobridge entered the USAF in 1969 as a Second Lieutenant following graduation from ROTC at Syracuse University, N.Y.
He began his career as a Basic Military School training officer and commander and as a military personnel officer. He subsequently served as a compensation and legislation analyst at HQ U.S. Air Force and in the Office of the Secretary of Defense as Director, Officer and Enlisted Personnel Management, with intervening assignments in Thailand and Germany.
His final assignment was as Chief of the Entitlements Division at HQ U.S. Air Force, with policy responsibility for military compensation, retirement and survivor benefits, and all legislative matters affecting the military community. He is a graduate of the Armed Forces Staff College and National War College.
Following retirement in January 1994, he was hired as MOAA's deputy director for Government Relations and was appointed director of Government Relations and elected co-chairman of The Military Coalition in March 2001.
Under Strobridge’s professional stewardship, MOAA has played a vital role as the principal advocate of legislative initiatives to improve readiness and the quality of life for all members of the uniformed service community—active, reserve, and retired, as well as their families.
Defense News noted recently that “no major [military] personnel-related legislation has been enacted since 1994 without Strobridge’s imprint.”
"On behalf of our Chairman, General Tilelli, our Board of Directors and entire staff and 380,000 members, I want to extend our profound gratitude and best wishes to Steve and Carol," Vice Adm. Norb Ryan, Jr., President of MOAA said.
