Tom Hicks' Background:

Tom, a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, former Navy nuclear submarine officer, engineer, businessman, husband and father, believes in and wants to serve his country again.

As the son of an Italian war refugee whose home and town were destroyed in World War II, Tom developed a deep appreciation for the freedoms enjoyed in this country that are, sadly, not universal.  As a U.S. Naval Academy graduate and Navy submarine officer during the cold war, Tom experienced firsthand the obligation and sacrifice required of those who serve.  As a small business owner and engineering consultant to large companies and national laboratories, he brings to this contest experience and a determination to take on today’s issues, with an eye on the interests of future generations.

Tom Hicks grew up and attended high school in East Islip, New York.  He graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1979 with an engineering degree.  After graduation, Tom completed post graduate studies in nuclear power and served as an officer aboard a nuclear-powered submarine through six deployments.  For the past 30 years, Tom has been a small business owner and engineering consultant.  Tom has been married to his wife Claudia, a retired nurse, for 34 years.  He is the father of two grown sons.
