Serving as the Academy's Head Swim Coach and self-proclaimed “jack of all trades”, John Barnes has been positively influencing, and building the next leaders of the future since 1998 so much that he says not just watching his athletes improve and strive to reach their goals but all cadets, is what has been his favorite moment over the past two decades.
