"Tom Krueger was standing at the church lectern, wearing golfing duds and carrying a nine-iron. He looked, and apparently felt, a bit sheepish. But, as usual, he had a mischievous twinkle in his eye too. 'I’m dressed today,' he said, 'the way I usually dress on Sunday mornings. You’re probably wondering why I, of all people, should be standing here on Stewardship Sunday, encouraging you folks to increase your commitment of ‘time, talents and treasures’ to this church, when my own commitment isn’t what it should be.

He is a decorated military general, where he served for 40 years – the longest-served director of NSA (from 2005-2014) – and now has his own cyber-security company in the private sector, IronNet, referencing his nickname (Iron2) in Operation Desert Storm. “The only way I’d get to be a CEO is if I started my own business,” Alexander said, “That’s the great thing about America!”
