Upon his retirement from the military, he served as Director of Press Operations and Public Information for the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Rick is also the author of Headlines from the Frontline: The Military and Media Relationship…An Uneasy Truce about censorship and communication in the military and the media. He has made appearances on C-SPAN as well as the NBC affiliate Channel 10 in Philadelphia.
