CAPT David J. Kern, USN (Ret.) '81
Hampton Roads Chapter Trustee

As a proud ’81 grad of 18th Company, I have served on six submarines, including command of USS SAN FRANCISCO (SSN 711) and first Commanding Officer of USS VIRGINIA (SSN 774),  served as Commander, Undersea Surveillance and many staff positions. 

In my nearly 30 years in the Navy, I am most grateful for the love and support of my wife Pam, my children, my family as well as the opportunity to go to sea with some truly heroic sailors in interesting times!

I am now a businessman and entrepreneur, and my focus as the Hampton Roads Chapter is to represent the interests of every member of my chapter and improve the coordination, communication, and mutual support that flows between our national alumni organization and our individual chapters.

Go Navy!  Beat Army!
