He served two tours, first as an aviation intelligence officer for VFA-86, deploying to the North Atlantic and the Mediterranean; second as a Collection Manager and Departmental Requirements Officer with Task Force 168, supporting both operational and technical intelligence missions. Gordy was directly involved in naval operations responding to the Soviet Union, freedom of navigation involving Libya, anti-terrorist operations in the Middle East, and combat support activity for Operation Just Cause (Panama) and Operation Desert Shield/Storm (Iraq).
Since joining SAIC, he has served in technical analysis, program management, and line management roles at the all levels in the company. He has supported a wide range of Intelligence Community clients and has worked intelligence issues at all levels including tactical support, combat/crisis operations, and national/strategic level requirements.
