Military men walking down a path

Commander Mike Fagan (US Navy) and Lt. Colonel Bryan Callahan (US Air Force) return to ASU for the Salute to Service football game and celebrations. They each attended ASU from 1992 to 1998, became friends and later comrades in arms as military pilots in the Navy and Air Force. During their first time back to ASU in more than 15 years, they noticed the many positive changes that have advanced our University.

CDR Michael Fagan is now serving as the Operations Officer for the Rear Admiral Commanding the Naval Air Force Reserve based at NAS North Island, San Diego, California. Additionally, he has now transitioned to the C-40A Clipper as a visiting staff pilot supporting VR-57 “Conquistadors” to further provide air logistics to the fleet.

Lieutenant Colonel Callahan is based at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada.
