Chip Leonard writes, “Since our 50th, I have continued to work on Defense Institution Building, under the auspices of RAND and the Office of the Secretary of Defense. During that time, I supported security and defense institutions in Montenegro, Ukraine, and Georgia; since 2018, my focus has shifted to Iraq and the Bahamas. As you can imagine, since last February, my work has been done virtually — conference calls, web meetings, etc. Fortunately, there people connected with our work on the ground in Baghdad and New Providence who can help us stay connected and coordinated.”
Chip and Barbara decided a few years back they wanted to find a more peaceful, but not too remote, place to live, and they have found a very nice house in a secluded neighborhood just outside Charlottesville, Virginia, and only five to 10 minutes away from shopping and other amenities.
They are slated to move in May. On the family front, Chip reports, “sons and daughters-in-law with three more grandchildren, so we now have a total of four: two boys and two girls. All three sons have made it through the pandemic without any major hiccups in their work or family lives. Son Charles lives in Austin and heads up the cyber security consultation organization for Price Waterhouse. Thomas works for Boston Consulting Group in Denver; he just finished working a couple of years for With Honor, a bipartisan PAC devoted to raising funds for veterans running for Congress. Alden now works for Amazon in Seattle, heading up part of their consultancy for executive communications.”
