 Corresponding Secretary of the Chapter Bob Bartron ’73

Bob Bartron ’73 was told by his mother while growing up, “Bob, you were born to be retired and a grandpa.”  Bob fulfilled his destiny in 2010 when he left the workforce and his first grandchild was born.  Initially assigned to the USS Schofield (DEG-3), he earned his SWO pin before requesting assignment to flight school in 1976. Upon gaining his pilot wings, he entered the ASW/patrol community and served in two Moffett NAS based squadrons.  His only shore duty in the Navy (other than being a student) before he retired in 1995 was always with Navy Recruiting Command in California, Washington D.C. and upstate New York.  After the Navy, Bob managed retail furniture stores and then was head of a private junior college.  He then recruited prior service members to become teachers in high-need areas through the federal “Troops to Teachers” program. After retiring from the Navy, Bob used his GI Bill to get a Masters of Arts in film.  Since 2010 he has been a full-time author. Currently he has thirteen titles in print, mostly fiction about sailors.
