In 2016, Rear Admiral (RADM) David F. Baucom retired from the U.S. Navy. He is now the senior director at Vintun LLC, an information services company in Alexandria, Virginia. Away from his professional endeavors, David Baucom enjoys reading history books written by authors such as David McCullough.

A two-time recipient of the Pulitzer Prize, David McCullough has written multiple best-selling books, including Mornings on Horseback, The Wright Brothers, and 1776. McCullough’s work covers everything from influential US political figures to the greatest strides in American innovation.

Most recently, McCullough released a collection of his speeches, titled The American Spirit: Who We Are and What We Stand For. The new book features addresses given by McCullough between 1989 and 2016 at the White House, before Congress, and to university audiences, among others. The American Spirit considers the various characteristics and principles that are unique to the United States.
