"What an extraordinary opportunity to learn, serve and lead this assignment has been," said Ver Hage "This is a high performance workforce . the best scientists, engineers and technicians in the world.  I have, and our nation has, asked so much of you, and you continue to hit it out of the park and achieve success in endeavor after endeavor."

Prior to taking command, Murray served as Deputy Major Program Manager for the Ship Self Defense System program in the Program Executive Office of Integrated Warfare Systems.

"My commitment to [Ver Hage] and to this outstanding workforce is to carry on the great work you have done here," said Murray.  "I look forward to supporting you in all you do, ensure that you have what you need to keep our Navy strong and to learn from you every day. You are doing amazing and critical work for our national security."
