Sen. Moran and Admiral Richardson Call Dawson Podlena
On Dec. 3, 2016, Sen. Moran sought the help of Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson to break good news to Topeka-native Dawson Podlena about his aspiration to serve our country. They caught Dawson in the middle of a wrestling tournament to let him know he’ll officially be a midshipman at the United States Naval Academy. Dawson was one of Sen. Moran's nominees to the academy in 2016.
