One of the first astronauts to go into space in a private rocket!!! Another first for a Tulane alum. First Super Bowl TD, first heart bypass operation, now this!

An unabashed tribute to our little Tulane NROTC unit at the intersection of McAlister and Freret: Class of 81 grad David Berger is the current Commandant of the Marine Corp, the service’s highest ranking officer; and Class of 88 grad Doug Hurley was a Marine F-18 pilot, Navy test pilot, and veteran of two US space shuttle flights, and now one of the first two commercially launched US astronauts.

Godspeed today, Mr. Hurley!
