US Army Brigadier General Robert Stewart had service in his DNA, following his Dad and Uncles who served in World War II. In his early career as an Army Lieutenant, he flew choppers in Vietnam for over 1000 combat hours. BGEN Stewart then expanded his career by becoming an experimental test pilot, flying 38 different types of aircraft.
Then one day, he stepped up and simply applied for a job from a flyer hanging on a bulletin board at work. What was the job? To be one of 35 men selected to fly on the early Space Shuttles! What does it take to be selected as one of 35 men out of 24,000 applicants?
During every phase of his career and family life, General Stewart has looked at the man in the mirror and worked his absolute best to lead his team, serve his nation and do the best job he could.
