You Don't Have to Be An Admiral: Darrin Briggs (USNA '03)

The mission of the Naval Academy is graduate leaders who are dedicated to a career of naval service and have potential for future development in mind and character to assume the highest responsibilities of command, citizenship and government.

In the "You Don't Have to Be an Admiral" blog series we feature Naval Academy graduates who have, after their military service, gone on to excel in various ways outside the military.

Our second graduate to be featured is Darrin Briggs (USNA '03). Darrin attended flight school in Pensacola after commissioning, but was medically disqualified from flying and subsequently separated from the Navy.

His Naval Academy training clearly taught him a lot about selflessness, however. When a coworker and friend learned one of her kidneys was failing, Darrin volunteered to donate a kidney to help her.

See more about his story in the video below, courtesy of Fox13, Salt Lake City.
