My most sincere condolences to the entire Roberts family. Mike was a member of our USNA Admissions leadership team. His passion for the academy and the nation easily surpass that of many if not most of our alumni. The quantity and quality of his contributions have been greater than that of just about anyone else in our organization. He will be missed by all of us.
Please let me know if there is anything we can do to support you during this difficult time.
