“Having such a superb representative of the Blue and Gold was a major success. A job well done!”

-D.R. Morris, Deputy Commander in Chief, US Naval Forces Europe


“Without reservation, this (Bursch’s visit) was one of the most enjoyable and informative events we have ever held. His superior personal skills were evident as he warmly greeted and patiently fielded ‘endless’ questions from our members and their families. This man is one of the strongest public affairs assets in your arsenal! In my opinion, Dan Bursch exemplifies the best of our country, the Naval Service and NASA. Thank you for the honor and privilege of allowing us to host his visit.”

-Chapter President, USNA Alumni Association, Atlanta, GA


“Bursch’s address was exceedingly well received. Not only did he capture the audience with his enthusiastic delivery and professional bearing, but he made an excellent connection between the role of modern astronaut and the heritage of those who gave their lives in the service of their country. It was clear to al that heard him that the space program of the United States is in good hands with such dedicated astronauts.”

-City Council member, Fullerton, CA


“His presentation will prove to be the highlight of our 2009 lecture series. No one was disappointed with his superb lecture. He was so informative and engaging. All his titles - Test pilot, NASA Astronaut, Navy Captain, and now Professor - reflect what a talented individual he truly is.”

-President, local organization in CA


“Your presentation was outstanding. As our keynote speaker, you managed to inform and interest an extremely diverse crowd. Young and old alike were able to identify with your reflections on your own middle school years. Your humorous  commentary entertained everyone in the auditorium.”

-State Engineering Administrator, Austin TX

“I was struck by his personal commitment to the Shuttle program and his pride in the accomplishments of Shuttle missions. I came away with a new respect for the space program. Astronaut Bursch provided an intelligent and understandable commentary on the development of the space shuttle and gave a human approach to this high-tech program.”

-Press Office Director, US Senator Joe Lieberman, CT 


“Your address was exceptional and extremely well received by the attendees. You were successfully able to emphasize the importance of life-long language and learning and connect this theme to your own experiences as an astronaut. Many attendees noted in their seminar critique sheets that your presentation was a highlight of the event. In particular, the photos of your experiences on the Space Station and views of Earth were inspiring to the audience.”

-Daniel Scott, Colonel, US Air Force, Assistant Commandant, Defense Language Institute, Monterey, CA


“Rotarians say your presentation, “Follow Your Dreams; Expedition Four to the International Space Station” was the best of all the Top 100 Dinner programs they have ever attended. As someone who has been at such events, I agree.”

-Committee member, Rotary Club, Carmel Valley, CA


“The audiences at both events were captivated with Dan’s presentation. Obviously the subject was intriguing and exciting, but I sensed it was Dan, the man, who made the difference. Dan demonstrated high technical professionalism, as I would expect NASA requires from its personnel. I think what charmed the audience was his warmth and humility. I saw children in awe of him yet he was able to instantly change that with a handshake, a pat on the back, and words of encouragement.”

-President, Dartmouth College Alumni Club, Charlotte, NC


“We cannot say enough about Dan Bursch. His sincerity, patience, and willingness to share his experiences with young and old alike were very special. Hundreds of people swarmed around him for autographs and he addressed each and every one with warmth. In today’s world where “HEROES” are far and few, Dan Bursch has become one in the eyes of many youngsters. He is a wonderful role model for children everywhere.”

Director, Symphony Orchestra, Houston, TX


“Your presentation inspired and educated the children. Your visit did more than just keep their dreams alive, it probably created a few more in each of their minds. We would be honored to have you back and time to help us “keep the dream alive.”

-Principal, Warrington, FL
