Biography

United States Navy rear admiral who commanded USS Enterprise from 1983 to 1986. A native of Texas, he later moved with his family to San Diego, California, where he graduated from high school. In 1953, he was admitted to Rice Institute in Houston, where he enrolled in the chemical engineering curriculum. He also joined the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC), so that immediately after receiving his bachelor's degree, he was also commissioned as ensign in the U.S. Navy.

The then-Capt. Robert Leuschner was replaced on 27 January 1986 as skipper of the USS Enterprise after the ship struck a rock 100 miles west of San Diego in November 1985, causing $17 million in damage to the hull. Leuschner died on 19 July 2016, aged 81.
