Admiral Farragut Academy Class of ’75’s Retired Navy Rear Admiral Mark “Buz” Buzby, who is the new Federal Maritime Administrator, was featured in Chesapeake Bay Magazine’s recent article “Anchor-Clanker, Admiral, Chesapeake Boater”, by author Beth Jannery.
“He told the Senate Committee, ‘My roots are in the Merchant Marine. Growing up in Atlantic City, my first breath of air was salt air. I got my first boat at age nine, and I bent on my first set of dress blues at age fourteen at Admiral Farragut Academy. I think you get the picture. I am proud to be an anchor-clanker. This is what I do, this is who I am.'”
