He served as Chairman and played an important role in program development and USMA’s strategic plan. Several years ago he was stricken with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) and soon passed away. Frank loved golf and was a very important part of the annual conference and golf tournament. In 2006 the USMA Board of Directors decided to name the annual tournament in memory of Frank and designate the ALS Association as the tournament benefactor.
