RIP Captain, Bravo Zulu -- CAPT Les Hesse was one of he good guys, always going the extra mile for his shipmates in New Orleans. My prayers are with him and his family.
I was saddened to hear of the passing of Captain Les Hesse. As a reservist in Reserve Intelligence Area 7, I along with other reserve personnel were very appreciative of Captain Hesse's professionalism and leadership as Reserve Intelligence Program Officer for RIA-7 in the early 1980's. He always had an open door policy for all of us and his direction and guidance was truly inspiring in the continuing development of our Naval careers. He will be missed but never forgotten.
