Meet VFMAC’s 2018-19 Lead TAC Team

VFMAC is pleased to announce our Lead TAC team for the 2018-2019 academic year:

  • GSM William Mott, Welsh Guards (Ret.)
  • COL Raymond Bossert, Jr., USA, ’85
  • LtCol J.J. Rivera, USMCR
  • SgtMaj Charles Anderson, USMC (Ret.)

This team will report to Colonel Kenneth M. DeTreux, USMC, Commandant of Cadets at VFMAC. The Lead TAC team is responsible for advising, coaching and guiding the cadets who reside in their barracks as the cadets negotiate their responsibilities, as well as supervising and managing their assigned TAC (Teach, Advise, and Counsel) team.

I strongly believe the Lead TAC Officer role is key to every cadet’s success at VFMAC and I am excited for our cadets to have them as mentors and leaders.
