 REBER SELECTED AS NEW STATE VETERANS HOME ADMINISTRATOR
 SACRAMENTO, Calif., May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Gov. Pete Wilson recently announced the appointment of P. Michael Reber as new administrator for the state veterans home in Yountville, Calif.
 Reber was interviewed and selected by a four person panel consisting of retired Navy Rear Admiral Hacker, Director California Department of Veterans Affairs (CDVA); Barbara Fitzer, Deputy Secretary, the State and Consumer Services Agency; Paul Battisti, Napa County supervisor and a former administrator of the home; and John Pride, chief of CDVA's Division of Human Resources.
 While there were a number of highly qualified candidates who responded to the department's nationwide recruiting campaign, "Captain Reber's background and experience in managing large government facilities, characterized by a diversity of challenge, is unique," said director Hacker.
 "His experience and vision brought him national recognition as Commanding Officer of the Naval Air Station in Memphis, Tenn., and the Naval Training Center in San Diego. As commander of both these complexes, Captain Reber managed small cities with a full range of facilities including industrial, office, medical, residential and recreational."
 Reber is a 28-year veteran of the United States Navy. His last assignment was as commander of the Naval Training Center in San Diego with responsibility for a $40 million budget and the training of 50,000 personnel annually. During his tenure he developed and implemented new concepts in employment training and motivation of personnel which resulted in his receiving the Navy Legion of Merit.
 As commanding officer of the Naval Air Station in Memphis, Reber directed the Navy's largest inland Naval Air Station. The station encompasses four thousand acres and 17,000 military and civilian personnel. There he attained national recognition for excellence in industrial safety and achievements in community relations and service delivery. His efforts resulted in his receiving the Secretary of the Navy Award for Industrial Safety.
 Reber has a bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Colorado and a master of science degree in international relations from Salve Regina University in Newport, R.I.
 In reflecting on his background of experience, Admiral Hacker noted that "Captain Reber has an impressive record of proven performance as an innovative and enthusiastic leader. His experience in implementing strategy, and in promoting harmony in the work environment, makes him an ideal selectee for the myriad of challenges he will face as the new administrator."
