About the author

My name is Dale Gump and I am originally from Buffalo, NY. I am currently a senior at Columbia University pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Earth Science. Prior to my enrollment there in the fall of 2011, I spent 7 years of active duty in the United States Navy. My tours included three years of sea duty on board the nuclear powered attack submarine USS MEMPHIS homeported in Groton, CT and four years working for the Director of Naval Intelligence at the Pentagon in Washington, DC. While there, I was able to complete an Associate of Arts degree at Northern Virginia Community College. At the conclusion of this school year, my intentions are to attend graduate school in the evening while seeking full-time employment in the earth or environmental science field.
