Michael Giorgione

Susan Esco Chandler & Alfred D. Chandler III

Rear Admiral Michael Giorgione, CEC, USN (Ret.) served 29 years on active duty in the United States Navy, retiring in 2010. He served as the Commander of Camp David for President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush, working under the White House Military Office (WHMO), the organization also responsible for Air Force One, Marine One, the Military Aides and other WHMO units. He is a much sought after speaker and educator throughout the United States and the world.

His new book is "Inside Camp David."

"A captivating stroll through the storied Maryland mountain retreat seen through the eyes of the Sailors, Marines, gardeners, cooks, handymen and their families who catered to the presidents. Rear Admiral Michael Giorgione, a charming raconteur, takes us behind the scenes and shows why, from Kennedy to Obama, presidents found Camp David (aka Naval Support Facility Thurmont) the ideal place for both white-knuckle international diplomacy and desperately-needed decompression: a walk in these woods can restore presidential sanity."-- Chris Whipple, New York Times bestselling author
