[NETWORK FAMILY] Ensign Michael Fitzpatrick Graduates from U.S. Navy OCS
LeClair Ryan senior trial lawyer John Fitzpatrick reports that his son who "didn't want to be like dad" graduated from Navy OCS last month. Michael Fitzpatrick, a 2000 honors graduate of the College of William & Mary, decided after the 9/11 tragedy that he wanted to "serve his country like his old man." Michael registered for Navy OCS and then qualified for flight school (which begins later this month). His hope is to fly F-18s - Hornets. Ensign Michael Fitzpatrick, age 24, hopes soon to become a United States Navy fighter pilot. So much for "not being like dad" (USMA, 1974; U.S. Army, 1974 - 1988, Major; Airborne Ranger, Prosecutor: 8th U.S. Army (Korea); Senior Trial Attorney, Pentagon). The old man is very proud.
