Steve McGugan’s passion to help people in the midst of crisis didn’t diminish when he retired from the U.S. Army. Only the battlefield has changed.
Driven to run to the sound of the guns, as one of his generals said, and responding to urgent situations distinguished his 24 years in the Army, including 39 months in combat operations.
That drive led McGugan, a colonel, to a new career. He joined Duke Energy in January as director of emergency preparedness.
