Mechanical aptitude is also a key requirement of the job. Dana graduated in the top 10% of his class with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the United States Military Academy at West Point, NY. After being commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant, Dana’s initial duty assignment was Fort Ord near gorgeous Monterey, CA (he got this desirable location thanks to his ‘Dean’s list’-level academic record). He put his mechanical mind to good use for the United States, serving for 4 1/2 years in the Corps of Engineers. Dana explained the benefits both of his background and his mechanical aptitude, “The needs of this job just mesh really well with my brain and how I think.“
Dana is an Eagle Scout, and he brings that sense of duty and diligence with him everywhere–even into his personal life. He owns a house in St. Louis, which provides ongoing projects for him. He has two grown children, daughter Summer (age 20) who lives in Reno, and 18-year-old John, who is a freshman in college this year.
