CAPT Brian Teets, a native of Urbana, OH received his commission in March of 1990 through the Navy ROTC program at Ohio State University where he earned a BSBA in Production and Operations Management.

His first tour was with the “Swampfoxes” of HSL-44 at NAS Mayport, FL, flying the SH-60B helicopter.  Serving three years with HSL-44, he deployed to the Arabian Gulf embarked in USS SAMUEL B.  ROBERTS (FFG-58) and in USS VICKSBURG (CG-69) to the Mediterranean and Adriatic Seas.

CAPT Teets’ first shore tour in 1995 was as Aide to the Commander, Naval Training Center Great Lakes, IL, and then to the Chief of Naval Education and Training in Pensacola, FL, dual-hatted as the Director of Navy Training, CNO (N7).

In 2000 CAPT Teets joined the HSL-45 “Wolfpack” stationed at NAS North Island, CA.  Embarked in USS INGRAHAM (FFG-61) he deployed to the Indian Ocean/Arabian Gulf with the CARL VINSON Battle Group in 2001 for Operation ENDURING FREEDOM.

Completing his tour as squadron Operations Officer, he detached in 2002 and reported to the Officer Plans and Promotions office on the staff of the Chief of Naval Operations (N1).

CAPT Teets next reported to the National War College for the 2005/2006 academic year graduating with a MS in National Security Strategy.  Concurrently, he earned a MA in National Security and Strategic Studies from the Naval War College in 2006.

Notice of Policy

Timely reservations are required for Greater Austin Council Events.  Rervations must be received by 2:00 p.m. two days before each event.

The Austin Woman's Club has become more strict because of our inability to manage reservations. This is because of those that no-show after making reservations (which costs the Council $25/meal) and those that arrive without reservations. We reserve the right to bill no-shows for their unpaid for, unused meals. Meals are not guaranteed and we will apply a $5.00 per person surcharge for guests arriving without reservations.

We must pay $25/meal for no-shows. Those with reservations that are then unable to attend a
dinner program are kindly requested to make a donation to the Greater Austin Council of $25/meal.
