Tim Fodor from Annapolis, Maryland

Tom Fodor is currently a Midshipmen at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He is set to commission in May 2024 as a Navy Pilot. In his time at the Academy, Tom has excelled in the classroom and on the track. In 2023 he earned Academic All-American honors and qualified for the NCAA D1 Regional Championships in the 3000m Steeplechase. Tom’s academic interests lie with Native American History. His curiosities in the subject have led him to writing his Undergraduate Capstone Thesis on Olympic gold medalist, Lakota warrior, and US Marine, Billy Mills. In addition to his adventures in learning about Native culture, Tom has also traveled to Europe and studied the tragedies of the Holocaust in depth as part of the Auschwitz Jewish Center Foundation’s American Service Academies Program. The opportunities he has been fortunate to receive have guided him on an unimaginable journey of understanding. After commissioning, Tom will continue on to Pensacola, Florida where he will begin Naval Flight training in pursuit of his wings of gold.
