Capt. Mark Kelly (USMMA ’86) announced in a FB note that he will be retiring from the Navy and NASA to spend more time with Rep. Gabrielle Giffords as she continues to recover from injuries sustained in a shooting in January of this year. Kelly was the commander of the last spaceshuttle Endeavour mission.

From the day I entered the United States Merchant Marine Academy in the summer of 1982 to the moment I landed the Space Shuttle Endeavour three weeks ago, it has been my privilege to advance the ideals that define the United States of America.
